+ == Code of Conduct reponse policy

reponse => response

  Once a ticket notifying us of a code of conduct issue has been filed, the Council will respond with an initial contact message within one week. That will come with a request for response, and further action will come within a week of the Council's initial response.

+ == Policy Change policy

+ 

+ Proposed changes to Fedora Council policies must be publicly announced on the https://lists.fedoraproject.org/admin/lists/council-discuss.lists.fedoraproject.org/[council-discuss mailing list] and in a http://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/[Fedora Community Blog] post in order to get feedback from the community. After a minimum of two calendar weeks, the Council may vote on the proposed change using the *full consensus* voting model. After approval, the change is reflected on the https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/council/policies/[Council policies page].

Per AsciiDoc Recommended Practices, they suggest writing one sentence per line. It makes it easier to compare diffs in changes to written documents. Normally I think this is a nitpick, but since this is a policy document, it might help to follow this convention for easier review of changes in the future.

We don't have a good policy for changing our policies. That seems like a bug we should fix.

I saw this ticket from the Community Blog post. I wanted to give a big :thumbsup: for this policy change. This adds better transparency and visibility into understanding how changes and decisions are made that involve the wider community.
