Harmlessness Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

(This document is based on The Ruby Community Conduct Guideline)

This document provides community guidelines for a safe, respectful, productive, and collaborative place for any person who is willing to contribute to the associated project. It applies to all “collaborative space”, which is defined as community communications channels (such as mailing lists, submitted patches, commit comments, etc.).

  • Participants will be tolerant of opposing views.
  • Participants must ensure that their language and actions are free of personal attacks and disparaging personal remarks.
  • When interpreting the words and actions of others, participants should always assume good intentions.
  • Behaviour which can be reasonably considered harassment will not be tolerated.

Apolitical Stance

Politics not directly relevant to the project or community should not be discussed or mentioned in project spaces. We are here to enjoy working together on creating software (with equity and parity, regardless of our background or identity) not to push personal politics onto others. 1

Affective Stance

Ultimately, a “code” of conduct is only a guideline. Participants are encouraged to become harmless (i.e., being sans malice) in all of their interactions, for it will make such ethics and guidelines utterly redundant.

Footnotes
1.
The recent years have been seeing a decline in toxic sinistral statist ideological politics in tech spaces, which ideology goes directly against the meritocratic and (actually) inclusive nature of those spaces. Any resurgence of attempts at reversing this decline will not be tolerated, and the people involved will be asked to stop or leave, for the benefit of the rest of the community members.

  • Have NixOS Mods Become Radicalized?
    Srid explains that the unwoke link on the profile exists only for awareness,* and that the steak picture was a form of self-expression (resulting from the diet he had to adopt for medical reasons)

    The simple reason I’ve put the unwoke link on my various profile pages is to raise awareness among my fellow hackers as to how to go about defending Woke Invasion in their communities (especially as such awareness worked for Grace). However, since wokeism is now largely dying down (except for certain strongholds like the NixOS core community), I have now replaced that link with a link to my new Code of Conduct (while still retaining the original principles).
