I think Greg is doing a fine job, and I personally will not take
patches to the CoC without *much* stronger reasons than just some
random opinion.

This is an area where everybody has opinions, and there is no inherent
technical agreement (ie no "look, numbers: this makes code 5%
faster"), so my policy wrt the CoC is that changes to it have to have
very concrete reasons for them. IOW, actual problems caused by real
issues, not "in my opinion".

Honestly, the list of discrimination factors looks fine to me, and if
it is shown to be insufficient or problematic, there's the documented
link to the Code of Conduct Committee. That sounds to me like the
right way to bring up problematic behavior - and if the review then
shows that "yes, the CoC should cover this too", then at that point we
have a real and present example and reason to modify the CoC.
