Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct is derived from the

Compony is a fun, welcoming, challenging, and fair place to play. This Code of Conduct (CoC) states our shared ideals with respect to conduct. are the coding standards for people within our community. It is a way to communicate our existing values to the entire community.

Discussion about this policy can be directed to the contact person of this Code of Conduct.

Be considerate #

Our work will be used by other people, and we in turn will depend on the work of others. Even if it's not obvious at the time, our contributions to Compony will impact the work of others in many ways. Knowing this in advance means we should be considerate when proposing changes both in terms of infrastructure, policy, documentation, components, etc... 

Be respectful #

The Compony community and its members treat one another with respect. Everyone can make a valuable contribution to Compony. We may not always agree, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behavior and poor manners. We might all experience some frustration now and then, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn into a personal attack. It's important to remember that a community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is by no means a community to be proud of. We expect members of the Compony community to be respectful when dealing with other contributors as well as with people outside the Compony project and with end-users of Compony.

Be collaborative #

Collaboration is central to Compony and to the larger free software community. This collaboration reduces redundancy, and improves the quality of our work. Internally and externally, we should always be open to collaboration. Wherever possible, we should work closely with upstream projects and others in the free software community to coordinate our technical, advocacy, documentation, and other work. Our work should be done transparently and we should involve as many interested parties as early as possible. If we decide to take a different approach than others, we will let them know early, document our work and inform others regularly of our progress.

Conflict resolution #

Conflicts in our community can take many forms. Disagreements, social and technical, are normal, but we do not allow them to persist and fester leaving others uncertain of the agreed direction.

We expect individuals to first try to resolve conflicts between themselves in a constructive manner, asking for help when needed. This approach gives people more control over the outcome of their dispute. If that fails, we ask to escalate the matter to the contact for CoC.

If you feel threatened or violated as a result of intimidating, bullying, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory, or demeaning conduct, please speak up and ask it to stop. If you do not feel that you can speak up, contact the contact for CoC immediately with evidence of the incident. Incidents of bullying and harassment can be reported privately and will be treated seriously and discreetly.

Please speak up if you notice someone else being subjected to such behavior. Refer people to our Code of Conduct and point out such behavior is not only unwelcome, we act on it too.

Nobody knows everything, and nobody is expected to be perfect in the community. Asking questions avoids many problems down the road, and so questions are encouraged. Those who are asked questions should be responsive and helpful. However, when asking a question, care must be taken to do so in the right place and context.

Step down considerately. #

Members of every project come and go and Compony is no different. When somebody leaves or disengages from the project, in whole or in part, we ask that they do so in a way that minimises disruption to the project. This means they should tell people they are leaving and take the proper steps to ensure that others can pick up where they left off.
