Rules and regulations that keep us +all moving in a forward direction are a reality for a community of this size. ++This document describes Gentoo's Code of Conduct for public communication +mediums, who shall enforce said Code of Conduct, the action taken should the +Code of Conduct be broken, as well as the method for appeals. Questions about +this document and its contents can be directed to the council at +council@gentoo.org.++By joining and/or participating in the Gentoo community, you are stating that+you accept and agree to adhere to the rules listed below, even if you do not+explicitly state so.++\subsection{Behaviour and Consequences}++\paragraph{Acceptable behaviour}++Things that should be seen:+\begin{itemize}+ \item +{\bf Be courteous.} Though respect is earned, it must start somewhere. + Respect someones right for their own opinion and acknowledge that they do + deserve a measure of politeness in your response.+\item+{\bf Give accurate information in the spirit of being helpful.}+\item+{\bf Respectfully disagree with or challenge other members.} The+ operative word here is respectfully.+\item+{\bf Using the correct forum for your post.} Bug reports and idle +chatter+ do not belong on the gentoo-dev mailing list; discussion about a+ wide-ranging change to the tree probably does not belong on Bugzilla.+ Different fora will also have different standards of behaviour -- a joke+ that is perfectly acceptable on IRC will be taken differently when made on a+ mailing list.+\item+{\bf Admit the possibility of fault and respect different point of views.}+ Noone is perfect -- you will get things wrong occasionally. Don't be afraid+ to admit this. Similarly, while something may seem perfectly obvious to you,+ others may see it differently. +\item+{\bf If you screw up, take responsibility for your actions.}+\end{itemize}++\paragraph{Unacceptable behaviour}++Gentoo developers have come together with a common purpose, to further the +project. Conflicts will undoubtedly arise, and though you are encouraged to work +through issues on your own, assistance is available as requested and as needed.++Deciding to suspend or ban someone isn't a decision to be taken lightly, but+sometimes it has to happen. Below is a list of things that could result in +disciplinary action.++\begin{itemize}+ \item + {\bf Flaming and trolling.} What is trolling? You are deemed to be trolling + if you make comments intended to provoke an angry response from others. +What is flaming? Flaming is the act of sending or posting messages that are + deliberately hostile and insulting.+\item +{\bf Posting/participating only to incite drama or negativity}+rather than+ to tactfully share information.+\item+{\bf Being judgmental, mean-spirited or insulting.} It is possible to+ respectfully challenge someone in a way that empowers without being + judgemental.+\item+{\bf Constantly purveying misinformation} despite repeated warnings.+\end{itemize}++\paragraph{Consequences}++Disciplinary action will be up to the descretion of the proctors. What is a +proctor? A proctor is an official charged with the duty of maintaining good +order. If discplinary measures are taken and the affected person wishes to +appeal, appeals should be addressed to the Gentoo Council via email at +council@gentoo.org. To prevent conflicts of interest, Council members may not +perform the duties of a proctor.++If you perceive a breach of the Code of Conduct guidelines, let the proctors +know. Though they will also be watching many of the public mediums for any +problems, they can not be expected to catch everything.++The proctors will attempt to resolve the problem by talking to involved +parties, potentially issuing warnings if appropriate. If the problem repeats +itself, there are various options open to the proctors, including temporary or +permanent suspension of a person's ability to post to mailing lists, removal of +Bugzilla access, or in more severe cases suspension of developer privileges. +Any action of this sort will require consensus from at least three proctors.++\subsection{Summary}++If you are unsure whether or not something is OK to post/comment/etc,+assume it isn't, and reconsider whether you need to post it. Remember that posts+made to mailing lists are archived for perpetuity, and read by far more people+than will be actively involved in any one thread. A comment made in anger can+have far-reaching consequences that you might not have thought about at the +time.++Remember, the moment you participate in a public discussion on Gentoo medium,+you have made yourself a representative of the Gentoo community. We hope that+you will not take this responsibility lightly, and will prove to be a positive+force in it.+++ \section{CoC enforcement proposal'', by Donnie Berkholz, Nov. 2007} \label{2007-11-dberkholz-coc} Source: \agoref{gentoo-council}{cbfe572adb090dfba1cc004b1cca6979}
