Hi Shane, good suggestion. I can spread some light on the sources we 
used to develop our CoC from. As per our press release [1] at the time 
we wrote the CoC:
/[The OSGeo Code of Conduct] is derived from the great work of other 
organisations, mostly from the Apache Foundation's Code-Of-Conduct [2]./

For links to more of the CoCs we reviewed and drew inspiration from, 
refer to my blog post at the time [3].
