Hi Tom, Charles et al,

Hello Tom,

I don't know why you posted this on the marketing list, perhaps we
should continue this discussion on discuss@... anyway.

Maybe such a code of conduct is needed, I don't dwell too much on the
users list to be frank. However, what's really important is to have this
code enforced, and that means to have community members who are able to
moderate and help the mailing list in question to remain polite and
helpful. In this sense, I would trust a few people more than I would
trust a code of conduct. As you do spend much more time  on the Users
mailing list than me, do you think you need such a code, or do you need
more people to help out users (in a polite tone, of course)?


To be honest, I listen in on many TDF/LibreOffice lists and there have been very few instances where a code of conduct would have been needed as a tool to remedy a "discipline" problem. The only place where there could be problems are of course on the users list when a user may show his/her frustration at not getting a particular part of LibreOffice to work as they want. Even then, almost all of users who have shown frustration were well received by LibreOffice members and helped as best as possible. We are not able to satisfy everyone, but IMO, the people helping out on the users mailing list are doing a formidable job.

I personally don't think we need a code of conduct.
