I think it's important to move forward here and I really like that David
has been keeping the ball rolling for so long. We've also blocked for a
really long time on getting a proper set of documents for GDPR
I don't think it's condescending. If anything, the level of detail
things are explained in make it easier to refer to this document alone
when pointing our digressions as opposed to having to refer to external
resources. The length doesn't appear to be unreasonable to me but I see
how it could be improved.
However, I think it's somewhat necessary to get _something_ in place
here as a CoC. Having something (even perhaps something that you think
has some need of shortening) is certainly better than no CoC at all! As
a compromise, I suggest perhaps pulling more detailed content (such as
the stuff that you deem to be condescending) into foot notes so that the
main body of the document will become a bit more focused and less
explanatory. Would that work for you?
You appear to generally be agreeing to the overall do's and don'ts (as
your MR's  overall points are about the same). I therefore would like
to implore you to roll with this version for now and then improve upon
it as a direct follow up.
We have to be careful not to burn out David here with too much
controversy as when that happens, no one will be here to pick up this
topic and there won't be any CoC at all.
