Over the past several years, code of conduct adoptions by open source projects has become the norm for establishing and communicating community values. However, enforcement of a code of conduct is the real key to creating welcoming and inclusive communities.

But up to now, only the largest open source projects have had access to the kinds of resources that make fair enforcement even possible, let alone manageable.

CoC Beacon is a project whose goal is to bring this potential to every open source project, large or small. CoC Beacon will provide project maintainers with a complete set of tools for managing their codes of conduct at all stages: setting up their enforcement teams, documenting their processes, reporting incidents, managing incident reports, forming consensus about enforcement decisions, and communicating clearly with reporters and offenders. 

CoC Beacon will be provided in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model to reduce friction for getting started, so that maintainers can focus on managing their projects and communities with a minimum of setup.

Your support for this project will fund its initial development, allowing us to build an implementation team to get us to 1.0.

I've been hard at work on CoC Beacon. My current goal is to have a working prototype to share with stakeholders by the end of January.
I put together a document outlining the features that I'm putting into the prototype and a list of some additional features that I plan to build before the public beta. You can check out the doc (and leave comments or questions!) at https://docs.google.com/document/d/11K96FhntmpcPCtYrsq55Ayib3VMOvzsXBa3Xlj7St0E/edit?usp=sharing
The other big news I have is that I am working on securing funding for the project from a couple of industry names. I can't mention who, but they have budget enough to fund a small dev and consulting team to make Beacon a reality. Wish me luck!
