Code of Conduct
The wiki is being retired!
Documentation is now handled by the same processes we use for code: Add something to the Documentation/ directory in the coreboot repo, and it will be rendered to https://doc.coreboot.org/. Contributions welcome!
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.
Examples of behaviors we do not accept in our community:
- 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.
Consequences of Unacceptable Behavior
Unacceptable behavior from any community member, including sponsors and those with decision-making authority, will not be tolerated.
Anyone asked to stop unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.
If a community member engages in unacceptable behavior, the community organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including a temporary ban or permanent expulsion from the community without warning (and without refund in the case of a paid event). Community organizers can be part of the arbitration team, or organizers of events and online communities.
If You Witness or Are Subject to Unacceptable Behavior
Our arbitration team consists of the following people
- Marc Jones <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Patrick Georgi <email@example.com>
- Ronald Minnich <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Stefan Reinauer <email@example.com>
