THE OPENSTACK FOUNDATION COMMUNITY CODE OF CONDUCT

Appendix 6

COMMUNITY CODE OF CONDUCT

This Community Code of Conduct covers our behavior as members of the OpenStack Community, in any forum, mailing list, wiki, web site, IRC channel, public meeting or private correspondence. OpenStack members and governance bodies are ultimately accountable to the OpenStack Board of Directors.

We pride ourselves on building a productive, happy and agile community that can welcome new ideas in a complex field, and foster collaboration between groups with very different needs, interests and goals.

Mailing lists and web forums

Mailing lists and web forums are an important part of the OpenStack community platform. This code of conduct applies to your behavior in those forums too. Please follow these guidelines in addition to the general code of conduct:

  1. Please use a valid email address to which direct responses can be made.
  2. Please avoid flamewars, trolling, personal attacks, and repetitive arguments. 

If a Community Member wishes to file a complaint against behavior that is not compliant with the Community Code of Conduct, he or she should contact the Executive Director ([email protected]).
