Following on a request by @Fae:
The promoters of the Code of Conduct for Wikimedia technical spaces have requested support from specialists in this area, and for this reason the Community Engagement department has contracted consultancy services. This task consists of documenting the requests made and the advice received, especially when this resulted in changes to the draft.
A couple of preliminary notes:
* The process used to work with Ashe and Valery has basically consisted on @Mattflaschen-WMF channeling questions to them and processing theur feedback. A couple of meetings have been held, but most of the conversation has happened via comments on shared docs or email.
* The decision to have Matt as a proxy for questions (as opposed to have these consultants participating directly in the CoC discussion) was economical: we had a limited budget paid by the hour, and we wanted to focus consultant time addressing specific questions filtered by us, rather than in a few discussions in that page, as extensive as they can be.
* Fae has requested this information several times. We haven't addressed his request so far basically because producing this summary takes time, and we have been busy. By creating this task, we are making clear that this request is in our backlog.
