Don't assume that someone can understand your particular explanation. - Keep in mind that English is a second language for many users. - Be respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences #### Respect - It is possible to strongly disagree without using harsh language or resorting to derogatory comments. If you disagree with someone, disagree with the argument, not the character of the person. - If your work receives criticism, receive it with grace and… - Remember that everyone is entitled to an opinion. - Using welcoming and inclusive language in all your interactions. #### Asking for help - If you don't know how to proceed with an aspect of development or documentation, ask for help! Always read the documentation, but don't be afraid to ask "silly" questions. - When asking for help, take advantage of the resources that are available to you, including the wiki, issue list, and Slack channel. #### Responsibility - If you did something wrong, apologize to the affected. Do your best to fix the issue and, if you can't, ask for help! - Show empathy towards other community members. - Focus on what is best for the community. #### Attribution - Give proper credit to everyone involved in any contribution to the project, be it documentation, tests, code, or anything in between. - If someone fails to give adequate contribution, gently remind them while being considerate. Assume that the omission was accidental, not malicious. ### Explictly Unacceptable Behavior - The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances - Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks - 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 ## Our Responsibilities Project 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. Project 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. ## Scope 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. ## Enforcement Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the project team at [email@example.com](mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org). All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately. Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the project's leadership. ## Attribution This Code of Conduct is primarily adapted from the [Contributor Covenant][homepage], version 1.4, available at [http://contributor-covenant.org/version/1/4][version]. The five "do these things" principles are adapted from the [Asterisk Community Code of Conduct](asterisk-coc) [homepage]: http://contributor-covenant.org [version]: http://contributor-covenant.org/version/1/4/ [asterisk-coc]: https://wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/AST/Asterisk+Community+Code+of+Conduct ### License The Contributor Covenant is licensed as follows: > The MIT License (MIT) > > Copyright (c) 2014 Coraline Ada Ehmke > > Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a copy of > this software and associated documentation files (the "Software"), to deal in > the Software without restriction, including without limitation the rights to > use, copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell copies of > the Software, and to permit persons to whom the Software is furnished to do so, > subject to the following conditions: > > The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all > copies or substantial portions of the Software. > > THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR > IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS > FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT.
