Regarding the CoC, it’s also important to have a reporting mechanism for reporting violations. The reporting mechanism should be reviewed regularly to make sure that it hasn’t gone stale (e.g., unmonitored email address, contact who has left the organization).

Also, the CoC should be reviewed with the community once or twice per year. This gets new people up to speed, reminds everyone of the policy and reporting process, and emphasizes that the CoC is taken seriously.
