I snipped your concerns with some of the language. I do agree with you
that a lot of is open to interpretation. But I also think it's
impossible to get it 100% airtight. My feeling was that it was a good
idea to go with some existing, well-established text, even if it has
some wiggle room. And then rely on the existing community and especially
the people listed above to do that interpretation.

For me it is obviously an ack, but I wanted to make clear that I think
your concerns (and those of others who spoke up, like René and Gábor)
are certainly _valid_. I just think that adopting this CoC is, while not
perfect, the least-bad option.

I'd also say that we might consider living with it for a while (6
months? a year?) and seeing if people have an interest in revising it
after that point based on experience.

This is the same text used by the kernel, btw.  I think somebody
mentioned to me (but I think it may have been off-list) that the kernel
has an "interpretation" document:

which clarifies a few terms with respect to that specific community. I
didn't feel that we particularly needed to do that for our community,
but if somebody wants to work up a clarifying document, I'd be happy to
review it.
