Hi Alfred,

Exactly, that’s the change we’re proposing: members of the project
(maintainers and contributors alike who want to formalize their
affiliation with the project) would “sign” the social contract, meaning
that they commit to upholding the values defined therein.

As you note, this would be “stronger” than the current situation where
maintainers are not expected do be willing to defend the project’s
values.

Thanks,
Ludo’.
