Can I ask folks who prefer the Django one to the Debian one specially
why? Is there something in Django's that's not in Debian's? Is there stuff
in the Debian one that people don't like explicitlly?

For me, I agree the Django one is shorter and better formatted, but it
seemed to cover less ground than the Debian one.

+1 on the CoC idea. I also like the Django example as a starting point. And
definitely +1 on no profanity - plenty of people are offended by it, and
that in itself should be enough to rule it out. It also adds nothing to the
process of communicating ideas to the community.
