This policy is not exhaustive or complete. It serves to capture our common understanding of a productive, collaborative environment.
We expect the policy to be followed in spirit as much as in the letter.
We encourage our community to resolve issues on their own whenever possible. This builds a broader and deeper understanding and ultimately a healthier interaction. In the event that an issue cannot be resolved locally, please feel free to report your concerns by contacting a moderator on IRC or via email at
firstname.lastname@example.org. In your report please include:
All reports will be reviewed by a multi-person team and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances.
Where additional perspectives are needed, the team may seek insight from others with relevant expertise or experience. The confidentiality of the person reporting the incident will be kept at all times.
Involved parties are never part of the review team.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately. If an individual engages in unacceptable behavior, the review team may take any action they deem appropriate, including a permanent ban from the community, or a report to law enforcement if necessary.
