Mailing list and chat etiquette
 
 
We have a friendly and productive atmosphere on our mailing lists, development / code review tools and IRC chat rooms. Our principles evolve around the following:
 
 
It's not the user's fault if something goes wrong.
 
Attempt? ?collaboration? ?before? ?conflict.
 
People who intentionally insult others (users, developers, corporations, other projects, or the coreboot project itself) will be dealt with. See policy below.
 
 
 
Refrain from insulting anyone or the group they belong to. Remember that people might be sensitive to other things than you are.
 
Most of our community members are not native English speakers, thus misunderstandings can (and do) happen. Always assume that others are friendly and may have picked less-than-stellar wording by accident.
 
If you feel that you have been treated unfairly, we want to hear about it so we can handle the situation. Please contact our arbitration team directly: They will listen to you. If you don't get a response within a few days, your mail was probably lost. Please resend your mail to another member of the arbitration team in that case.
