I think a good code is "Try not to be an asshole." You can but try.
Never-the-less, I feel it mitigates the need for an angry god and makes the
10 commandments redundant.
Anyway, thanks to Bess for raising the issue. I think all of you have made
a great start. I think there are more than enough volunteers already, but I
would contribute if you need me. Using Github seems like a good way to
garner support and endorsement of the final policy. I've added it to my
"starred" list to show my support.
