This is a nice contained task which fixes a concrete issue, and an opportunity
to make some tangible progress.

We already have a set of volunteers who were willing to serve behind the ombud
alias.  Hopefully we can confirm their willingness to add their names to a
public list.

Here's a simple patch:


I don't think the ASF Code of Conduct page has any specific maintainer
attached to it beyond the Board itself.  I figure that once we have consensus
on a patch and a volunteer list, I can run the change by board@apache for
completeness, then apply.
