The GNOME Code of Conduct says: Be friendly. Be empathetic. Be respectful.

The GNOME Foundation signed an "open letter" accusing a software freedom activist of being "misogynist, ableist, and transphobic".


(1) Is the letter in line with the GNOME Code of Conduct?

(2) Is it okay for the GNOME Foundation, as an organization, to sign something like that?

Personally I lean towards "no" on both questions, but I would like to hear what you think, especially GNOME developers.



@eliasr I toot it in the past about that. Not only gnome but other open source projects, the best thing is that issue posted on GitHub was deleted. I don't care what gnome, systemd and others Red Hat's dogs would say.
