  • Be considerate. Our
    work will be used by other people, and we in turn will depend on the
    work of others. Any decision we take will affect users and colleagues,
    and we should take those consequences into account when making
    decisions.  Even if it's not obvious at the time, contributions to
    Facade will impact the work of others. For example, changes to code,
    infrastructure, policy, documentation and translations during a release
    may negatively impact others' work.
  • Be respectful. The
    community and its members treat one another with respect. Everyone can
    make a valuable contribution to Facade. 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 not a
    productive one. We expect members of the community to be respectful when
    dealing with other contributors as well as with people outside the
    project and with players of Facade.
  • Be collaborative. Collaboration
    is central to Facade and to the larger free software community. We
    encourage individuals and teams to work together whether inside or
    outside the Facade Project. 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 efforts in all areas whether they be technical,
    advocacy or documentation. 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.
  • When we disagree, we consult others. Disagreements,
    both social and technical, happen all the time and the Facade community
    is no exception. It is important that we resolve disagreements and
    differing views constructively and with the help of the community and
    community processes.  There are also several teams and team leaders, who
    may be able to help us figure out the best direction for Facade. When
    our goals differ dramatically, we encourage the creation of alternative
    sets of ideas, or derivative ideas, so that the community can contribute
    new ideas and provide feedback.
  • When we are unsure, we ask for help. 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 an appropriate forum.
  • Step down considerately. Members
    of every project come and go and Facade 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 minimizes 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.


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.
    On technical matters, the technical team can make a final decision.
