Subject[PATCH 2/2] code-of-conduct: Strip the enforcement paragraph pending community discussion
Significant concern has been expressed about the responsibilities outlined in
the enforcement clause of the new code of conduct. Since there is concern
that this becomes binding on the release of the 4.19 kernel, strip the
enforcement clauses to give the community time to consider and debate how this
should be handled.
