Hi Adam, Hi Nikola

Thanks both of you for the work put into this.

Here are my thought and comments:
When reading Adams text it refers to a body of Leadership. Both source 
Projects (FreeBSD and FiFo) have such a Role defined. Do we have that?

Adams text is more worded towards being a set of rules. Nikolas more in 
the sense of expectations. I prefer expectations.

When I read the words "will not be tolerated" it imediatly raises the 
question what will hapen if i break those? Who punishes and how? In my 
opinion "Discouraged behaviour" is the better wording.

I prefer the managing misuse and escalation section over the reporting 
violations. We have a very friendly community. There should not be a 
need to involve a third party to resolve issues from the very beginning.

The very notion of twitter is that everything is public.

I find the point "Maintain welcoming environment for new contributors 
and guide them in contributions." very important. I would like to have 
that in.

What is the desired outcome of a code of conduct? Should it be a set of 
rules? Or a set of expectations from each other? Is it assumed to be the 
same for all codes of conducts? If so should we link to that definition? 
or do we need to define that?
