Europe's Open Source Consortium has begun work on a set of ethical guidelines covering open source development.

Is this trip really necessary? How will such guidelines be policed, and who will police them? What penalties should we have for those who violate the guidelines?

And what would such guidelines consist of, anyway?

It's a great subject for a weekend TalkBack. Have fun.
