<h1>Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct (draft)</h1>
<h2>Our Pledge</h2>
In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as
contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our
project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone,
regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, sex
characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience,
education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance,
race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
<h2>Our Standards</h2>
Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:
Using welcoming and inclusive language
Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
Focusing on what is best for the community
Showing empathy towards other community members
Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:
The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual
attention or advances
Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political
Public or private harassment
Publishing others' private information, such as a physical or
electronic address, without explicit permission
Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in
a professional setting
<h2>Our Responsibilities</h2>
Maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable
behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action
in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.
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.
This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and 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 appointed representative at an online or
offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and
clarified by project maintainers.
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may
be reported by contacting the project maintainer, Michael Kerrisk,
at <a
In the event that you have a problem with the maintainer,
there is no formal process, but it is suggested that you send a report
to the Linux Kernel Code of Conduct Committee at
&lt;<a class="reference external" href="mailto:conduct&#37;&#52;&#48;kernel&#46;org">conduct<span>&#64;</span>kernel<span>&#46;</span>org</a>&gt;.
All complaints will be reviewed and investigated
and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate
to the circumstances. The maintainer/Committee is obligated to
maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident.
Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted
This Code of Conduct is adapted from the
<a href="">Contributor Covenant</a>,
version 1.4, available at
Above all the goal is this: be kind to one another.
Other than that, the
Kernel Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct Interpretation</a>
document will be considered as the starting point for the interpretation
of this Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct.
