FYI, Richard Stallman got "cancelled" out of his life's work because some
silly side-comment trigged some "woke" individual out there. In the real
world, covenants are often used as an excuse to silence someone with an
implicit threat because he said something that someone didn't want to
hear,  whatever that may be.

This list was fine without it, we don't have any problems, just replace it
with "keep the subject matter on pharo, anything else is off-topic"
