CodeOfConduct Signature/Acknowledgement Lacks Integration
The process for signing the CoC, leadership or not, is disjointed from the process of entering the Ubuntu world. The way most people enter this world is that they install Ubuntu on their computer (or perhaps run it from a LiveCD). It is counter-productive to expect them to check in several different places for information that is key to establishing community, as has been discussed elsewhere.
Upon successful installation of Ubuntu, there should be a program that runs and presents CoC's for signature based on some basic user-input.
I'm not a UI person, nor a programmer, but conceptually(and very roughly) something like this:
"Welcome to Ubuntu. This is a community-based project and some of the best support and information can be derived from people in your local community. As an Ubuntu user you are encouraged join your neighbours in helping one-another. One way to do this is by joining a LoCo."
Choices are: <Yes, tell me more> or <No thanks, maybe later>
"LoCo's are open to all and friendly to any level of participation in the project, regardless of your experience level. We encourage everyone who participates in a LoCo to acknowledge a "Code of Conduct". This helps to strengthen the community and provides a positive experience for everyone."
Choices are: <I'd like to see the CoC> or <No thanks, maybe later>
I'm not in favour of an approach that assumes people will track down wikis and information scattered across the web.
Every user of Ubuntu should see the CoC, by default, at least to know that it exists. My sole goal in suggesting this is to tighten the integration of the OS with our unique (and admirable) community processes.
