Coreboot Code of Conduct


This code of conduct outlines our rules and expectations for everybody participating in the coreboot community.


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.


Unacceptable Behavior

Unacceptable behaviors include: intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory or demeaning speech or actions by any participant in our community online, at all related events and in one-on-one communications carried out in the context of community business. Community event venues may be shared with members of the public; please be respectful to all patrons of these locations. Harassment includes: harmful or prejudicial verbal or written comments related to gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability; inappropriate use of nudity and/or sexual images in public spaces (including presentation slides); deliberate intimidation, stalking or following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Check your motives: Using this code of conduct aggressively against other people in the community might also be harassment. Behave.
