The manner of "who" and "how" to report any concerns is something that the foundation board, through the transparency committee, has been trying to address. We don't have a formal ombudsman's office yet, but the draft transparency policy[1] includes some language around this specific responsibility.

I would second Daniel's suggestion that the Code of Conduct should be click wrapped into registration - however, since most of registration is complete for this event, perhaps we can do a dedicated email blast to the registered attendees (including speakers and sponsors) with the full text of the CoC? (Stefano, can you coordinate that?)

David, if you have specific suggestions for amendments to the CoC, I'm happy to bring those forward to the next board meeting. It's part of the foundation's charter, and I believe it will take a fairly major process to amend, but I'll look into it.

"Oh, Westley, we'll never survive!"
"Nonsense. You're only saying that because no one ever has."
