One thing that individual projects can do is affirm the ASF Code of
Conduct on their websites.

  http://couchdb.apache.org/#contribute
  https://www.apache.org/foundation/policies/conduct

I'd suggest that anybody who feels like scratching this itch JFDI,
using the CouchDB language as a template. Don't ask permission first
and don't sweat the wording, just update the website -- because the
Code of Conduct already applies across all Apache projects. If people
feel like iterating on the wording later, that's fine -- but get
something up there to start with.

And then, once it's up, it would be great to hear back on this list about it. :)
