It's tough work to get everything right in a CoC. I think that's probably why 
the Contributor Covenant was chosen in the first place, but IMO it was a bad 

The GKCG is slightly less polished, and only preferable because it does NOT 
specify processes (making it less important to agree with every word). The 
processes are where the whole controversy is; nobody objects to behaving 

If you must spell out consequences for bad behavior, the Debian Code of Conduct 
is impeccable, I suggest starting with that. Despite the fact that I dislike 
codes of conduct in principle, I couldn't find a single thing wrong with it.
