Harassment consultation 2015/Ideas/Contributor Covenant

Project ideaEdit

Idea by:Ocaasi (WMF)

What is the problem you're trying to solve?Edit

We have not done what many other open collaborative communities have done: commit to inclusiveness and define limits on behavior. We have also not used what has worked for others as a guide to our own issues. This idea adopts the "Contributor Covenant".

This code of conduct has already been adopted by nearly 10,000 open source projects. Here are just a few major projects using the Contributor Covenant.

  • Atom
  • AngularJS
  • angular-formly
  • Babel
  • Bundler
  • chef-rvm
  • Diaspora
  • Eclipse
  • Elixir
  • Exercism.io
  • GitLab
  • HaskellNow.org
  • Homebrew-Cask
  • Jekyll
  • Lotus
  • Mensa
  • Monsti CMS
  • Mozilla Webmaker
  • Rails
  • ROM
  • RSpec
  • ruby-community
  • RubyGems.org
  • RVM
  • Shoes
  • Spree
  • TinyMCE
  • Volt.rb

Contributor Code of ConductEdit

As contributors and maintainers of this project, and in the interest of fostering an open and welcoming community, we pledge to respect all people who contribute through reporting issues, posting feature requests, updating documentation, submitting pull requests or patches, and other activities.

We are committed to making participation in this project a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of level of experience, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, or nationality.

Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

  • The use of sexualized language or imagery
  • Personal attacks
  • Trolling or insulting/derogatory comments
  • Public or private harassment
  • Publishing other's private information, such as physical or electronic addresses, without explicit permission
  • Other unethical or unprofessional conduct
  • Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.

By adopting this Code of Conduct, project maintainers commit themselves to fairly and consistently applying these principles to every aspect of managing this project. Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct may be permanently removed from the project team.

This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community.

Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting a project maintainer at [INSERT EMAIL ADDRESS]. All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. Maintainers are obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident.

This Code of Conduct is adapted from the Contributor Covenant, version 1.3.0, available from http://contributor-covenant.org/version/1/3/0/

Project maintainers--ranging from WMF staff to Wikipedia admins--have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.

By adopting this Code of Conduct, we commit to fairly and consistently applying these principles to every aspect of managing this project. Those of us who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct may be permanently removed from the project.
