Hey Rusties!

We've got a truly delightful community here, and as we grow we want to 
keep it that way. Today we're making two small additions to our [code of 
conduct] to fill in some gaps. The relevant changes are:

* To bullet 6 we've added, "in particular, we don't tolerate behavior 
that excludes people in socially marginalized groups."
* A new bullet has been added that says: "Private harassment is also 
unacceptable. No matter who you are, if you feel you have been or are 
being harassed or made uncomfortable by a community member, please 
contact one of the channel ops or any of the Rust core team immediately. 
Whether you're a regular contributor or a newcomer, we care about making 
this community a safe place for you and we've got your back."

This last point emphasizes that there is recourse for anybody who feels 
like they are being mistreated by other community members.

Thanks, and keep being awesome.
