1# Fuchsia Code of Conduct
2
3Google and the Fuchsia team are committed to preserving and fostering a diverse,
4welcoming community. Below is our community code of conduct, which applies to
5our repos and organizations, mailing lists, blog content, IRC channel and any
6other Fuchsia-supported communication group, as well as any private
7communication initiated in the context of these spaces.
8Simply put, community discussions should be the following:
9
10 * Respectful and kind
11 * About Fuchsia
12 * About features and code, not the individuals involved
13
14## Be respectful and constructive
15
16Treat everyone with respect. Build on each other's ideas. Each of us has the
17right to enjoy our experience and participate without fear of harassment,
18discrimination, or condescension, whether blatant or subtle. Remember that
19Fuchsia is a geographically distributed team and that you may not be
20communicating with someone in their primary language. We all get frustrated
21when working on hard problems, but we cannot allow that frustration to turn
22into personal attacks.
23
24## Speak up if you see or hear something
25
26You are empowered to politely engage when you feel that you or others are
27disrespected. The person making you feel uncomfortable may not be aware of what
28they are doing. Politely bringing their behavior to their attention is
29encouraged.
30
31If you are uncomfortable speaking up, or feel that your concerns are not being
32duly considered, you can email <community-managers@fuchsia.dev>  to request
33involvement from a community manager. All concerns shared with community
34managers will be kept confidential, but you may also submit an anonymous report
35[here](https://goo.gl/forms/xgisUdowrEWrYgui2). Please note that without a way
36to contact you, an anonymous report may be difficult to act on. You may also
37create a throwaway account to report. In cases where a public response is deemed
38necessary, the identities of victims and reporters will remain confidential
39unless those individuals instruct us otherwise.
40
41While all reports will be taken seriously, the Fuchsia community managers may
42not act on complaints that they feel are not violations of this code of
43conduct.
44
45## Harassment is not tolerated
46
47Harassment is not tolerated, including, but not limited to the
48following:
49
50 * Harassing comments
51 * Intimidation
52 * Encouraging a person to engage in self-harm
53 * Sustained disruption or derailing of threads, channels, lists, and similar
54   forums
55 * Offensive or violent comments, jokes, or otherwise
56 * Inappropriate sexual content
57 * Unwelcome sexual or otherwise aggressive attention
58 * Continued one-on-one communication after requests to cease
59 * Distribution or threat of distribution of people's personally identifying
60   information, also known as “doxing”
61
62## Consequences for failing to comply with this policy
63
64Consequences for failing to comply with this policy may include any of the
65following, at the sole discretion of the Fuchsia community managers:
66
67 * A request for an apology
68 * A private or public warning or reprimand
69 * A temporary ban from the mailing list, blog, Fuchsia repository or
70   organization, or other Fuchsia-supported communication group, including
71   loss of committer status
72 * A permanent ban from any of the above, or from all current and future
73   Fuchsia-supported or Google-supported communities, including loss of
74   committer status.
75
76Participants warned to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply
77immediately. Failure to do so will result in an escalation of consequences.
78The decisions of the Fuchsia community managers may be appealed at
79<community-managers@fuchsia.dev>.
