Thanks for doing this. In my view, it's long overdue.

So, there is a wider context to this. Which is a good thing, but it would
be good to have
that fleshed out. Not necessarily conclusions, but it would be good for the
community at
large to understand what's missing and what's being done about it.

Overall, I'm happy with most of this. It's about the right length, as well.

I think you need an explicit reporting mechanism. Something like "email
abuse at openindiana.org"
or the like. (Of course, you need that to be routed somewhere.) And the
first statement about
confidentiality means that the 2nd part about not being made public is
redundant. There's also
no mention of consequences.
