as far as I know the current version of CoC has been applied to other parts
of the distribution for a long time.
this rfc only makes this application visible and official.

thus, I think that the correct option is to separate the concept of consent
to the use of CoC and the text of the CoC itself.

the problem is that I and, as far as I understand, other people
participating in this thread see no problem with changing the text of CoC
after the adoption of this RFC which just makes CoC an official part of
our community, and also clearly describes how to change CoC's text.

to be honest, I absolutely cannot understand why you think CoC is
in my opinion, the problems with the size of the text and with its depth
do not deserve such a low rating.

also, if it helps, I and a few other friends of mine, whose English is not
so good, read the current version of CoC and did not find any problems
with understanding it's text.
