Yes for me but always interested in hearing from others.

applied to future OSGeo projects and FOSS4G events then please speak up
with your support or recommended suggestions for changes.

I think the we did a good job sorting through other comparable codes of
conduct and finding where the best aspects came together.   Cameron also
did a lot to keep the conversation going and not getting too distracted
with minor details. Cameron also did a lot to try and incorporate various
disparate views which is not an easy task. Thanks for that.

Best regards,  Eli
