DBA Code of Ethics

There's an interesting discussion going on over at DBAZine and SSWUG.org about building a code of ethics for DBAs. Of course they are looking for folks to participate in the formation of such a document. If you haven't been over to either of those places they tend to focus on Oracle, SQL Server, and DB2 but are expanding to include open source databases. The SSWUG about page even mentions MySQL.

I first caught sight of this movement in a post by Craig Mullins a few months back. Just last week Craig posted an update on the happenings with a call to get involved.

At this point a proposed outline has been posted by Stephen Wynkoop, along with some comments on the feedback he's gotten so far.

I know, just another thing to stick on the enless to-do list. If it strikes a chord with you there's no reason to hold back.
