I agree we'll need such code of conduct. Even if we are (or were?)
a bunch of only friendly people it would be no reason to not have one to
make others feel more safe and secure who are not yet.
Personally I like the Berlin Code of Conduct
which is already supported by various user and hacker groups.
If agreed, I suggest we make a formal decision at Bruxelles during our
meet-ups along FOSDEM.
