Each project maintained by the Alamofire Software Foundation is governed by a Technical Committee (TC), which operates under a Consensus Seeking decision making model.
See GOVERNANCE.md for details.
We are actively working to transition projects into this new governance structure. As no formal processes existed previously for these projects, we anticipate a brief transitionary period before these policies are fully implemented. In the interim, the Alamofire Software Foundation members will serve as the TC for each project. The progress of each project's adoption of a formal Technical Committee will be tracked by GOVERNANCE.md.
Code of Conduct
Our Code of Conduct governs how we behave in public or in private whenever the project will be judged by our actions. We expect it to be honored by everyone who represents the project officially or informally, claims affiliation with the project, or participates directly.
See CONDUCT.md for details.
