[Pulp-dev] Fwd: Community Standards

Are we ok with GitHub's automation not detecting our Code of Conduct?  See
forwarded message below.  I am, especially since it's a known issue they
have a ticket open to improve, but wanted to ask the rest of you.

A) Leave as is, so we only have to maintain it in one place (our website)
and link to it from our CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md file even though GitHub doesn't
detect this.
B) Duplicate the text into the CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md file to get detected
properly by Community Standards automation in GitHub.

Hey Dana,

Thanks for reaching out to GitHub Support!

Currently, the tool will only check specifically for code of conduct files
that we recognize, not just the existence of a CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md. This was
an intentional choice made to avoid giving folks a checkmark if they've got
a file full of content that is not actually a code of conduct.

That said, we do have an issue open about improving this behavior & I've
added your report there.

In the meantime, if you'd like your code of conduct recognized, you could
switch to one of the ones we provide via our code of conduct tool:


That would guarantee you're using a specific code that we recognize. I hope
this helps, and just let us know if you have any other questions!

Best regards,
GitHub Support

We've been trying to get the Pulp Project up to community standards, adding
a Code of Conduct, a pull request template, contributing guide, etc. It
still says we have no Code of Conduct even though the CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md
file is in the main directory with the README and everything else that it
is detecting. (See https://github.com/pulp/pulp and
https://github.com/pulp/pulp/community) I was wondering if it's because we
are linking externally to our site? We are trying to have only one place to
maintain the file, but we do want to be compliant so that we are welcoming
to new members of the community. Please let us know if the automated check
just misses this kind of link out or if we have to do something else.
