Can we get a clarification on "Real Names", please? That could resolve this. I'm sure other LF projects aren't turning away trans contributors ... is there language they use?

Josh,

I would tell folks to NOT change anything that they are doing today. 

ChrisA jumped the gun and pushed the change directly to master. I was looking to have a conversation + debate.

I am waiting for some notes from the original person who asked the questions, so then we could figure out how to get it in front of the GB Legal Committee.

So tell them to hang tight and not change a thing. Let this be a FAQ for *new* project(s) for now.

Can you explain how we reconcile this with the CNCF code of conduct?

Asking because a simple reading of it would require "deadnaming" many of
our trans contributors.  How do we avoid that?

Re: Real Name Policy for CNCF

Gareth Rushgrove
 

Worth noting the policy doesn't define "real name".

This could be implied to mean full legal name (not a lawyer, but I
think that's the common usage term in law). Or you could imply it to
mean "the name literally everyone calls me in the real world". Those
two names for lots of people could be different.

That I think makes it clearer how this can be exclusionary and open to
being weaponised against marginalised folks.

The U.S. Copyright Office [2] (where the CNCF is based) and the Canadian Intellectual Property Office [3] (where I am personally based) both affirm that use of a pseudonym is permitted.

I'm sure there are others who have more expertise in the subject who could provide more reasons and context, but I personally feel like this is an unnecessary barrier to contribution and may exclude talented contributors from our projects.
