[Openstack] Fwd: Making the Hong Kong Summit as inclusive as possible

I would greatly support a reporting process for issues for our Summits.
Thanks David for bringing it to the mailing list. I can help in any way

One bit of input, I'm not sure wording as strong as "anti-harrassment
policy" is required, though that's at the heart of it. We can probably
follow in PyCon's footsteps with a Code of Conduct for conferences, [1]
which refers to the Ada Initiative's wiki. [2]

Also, as a gentle reminder (ha!) as members of the community, we do have a
code of conduct in place already [3]. I'd like to ensure we carry some
processes for ensuring we all are welcomed at Summits and have a safety net
for reporting and correcting issues.
