It should be mentioned in the devguide that receiving one's core developer privileges includes following the PSF CoC (

The discussion seems to have gone in the direction of putting all core-controlled stuff under the CoC. So the devguide will mention this is the policy.

The PSF board passed a resolution in January 2014 that all web-related stuff falls under the CoC: I'm still pushing to get the CoC mentioned in the devguide but I've given up on pushing to explicitly state it for python-dev,, or anywhere else.

The python-dev thread more-or-less petered out w/ the basic agreement that adding a short mention in the devguide would be tolerable. When I have a chance I will add a very short mention at the end of the opening page.

Thanks for the patch Evelyn. The patch looks good to me. I have a couple of suggestions:

1. It seems like is a better place to put this

2. Core committers -> Core developers

3. PSF CoC -> PSF Code of Conduct

4. Could you also link "PSF Code of Conduct" to ? I always need to look at the Sphinx docs but we need to make it look like

Thanks for the patch, Evelyn! The latest one LGTM and I will commit it when I have time.

I do still plan to add a subsection at the bottom of the index page mentioning the CoC so it's in a very visible location.

Ok, so are you going to push it?

I figured Berker was/had when he did the review, but I can take care of it when I get around to it (prioritizing 3.6 features ATM).
