Autocrypt Community Code of Conduct¶
In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers strive to make participation in the Autocrypt community a pleasurable, harassment-free experience.
Examples of behavior that contribute to creating a positive environment include:
Using welcoming and inclusive language
Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
Showing empathy towards community members and newcomers
Helping and mediating in cases of upsets or conflict
Examples of behavior which we ask everybody to avoid include:
The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
Public or private harassment
Publishing others’ private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission
Other behaviour which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting
We recognize that sometimes people may have a bad day, or may be unaware of the impact of their behaviour. When that happens, you may carefully remind them in public or private, whatever is more appropriate. Assume good faith; it’s more likely that participants are unaware than that they are intentionally trying to denigrate others or reduce the quality of discussion.
Maintainers and Responsibilities¶
Project maintainers are those with commit rights to the Autocrypt specification. Each maintainer is asked to take responsibility and appropriate, careful action in response to witnessed instances of questionable behavior. 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. They may also ban temporarily or permanently a contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
This Code of Conduct applies both within project communication channels and gatherings as well as in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an representative at an online or offline event.
Reporting and Responses¶
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting select project maintainers, currently email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org – they are also often on the IRC #autocrypt channel on freenode. They will review reports and involve other maintainers as appropriate, resulting 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. Maintainers are themselves not exempt from being reported about and may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other maintainers.
