But even as someone who knows their way around GPG, that was harrowing. No musician or artist experimenting with linux on a live-usb for the first time is going to successfully navigate that process to correct a wiki typo. I don't know if that means it's only worth recruiting among existing ubuntu contributors, or we need to find ways to get people involved outside launchpad... but anyone with a half an hour to get their feet wet is going bounce off that process and never return.

If any other new folks find the code-of-conduct signature process as mystifying as I did, this was the simplest guide I found (though the key-import screenshot is wrongly about ssh-key import, which is different than the gpg-key import you need to do to sign the CoC): https://www.wikihow.com/Sign-the-Ubuntu-Code-of-Conduct
