Yes, the Contributor Covenant does not fit the GNU project's ideals
very well. It is also my opinion that it is too political. I think we
want a code of conduct which ensures we have a nice community, not one
that makes us take political stances not related to free software.

I like the GNOME Code Of Conduct, but also want to suggest the Debian
Code of Conduct[1], which is more detailed, not political and fits this
project very well since Debian has similar ideas to ours on free
software (at least more than the Contributor Covenant), and is a
distribution like GuixSD.

The current code of conduct hasn't been there for long and changing it
wouldn't cost anything. :)
