Code of Conduct

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment we want participation in our project and our community to be a harassment-free experience for everyone.

Although no list can hope to be all-encompassing, we explicitly honor diversity in age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, native language, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Our Standards

We aim to promote behavior that contributes to a positive and welcoming environment. Examples of such behavior include:

  • Using inclusive language
  • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
  • Showing empathy towards other community members

We do not tolerate harassment or other, inappropriate behavior in our community. Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

  • The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
  • Personal or political attacks on contributors, and insulting or derogatory comments on contributed code with the intent to undermine contributions
  • Public or private harassment

Our Responsibilities

The maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

The maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.


This Code of Conduct applies both within our online GitHub repository and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event.


Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting Elizabeth DuPre at Confidentiality will be respected in reporting.

As the first interim Benevolent Dictator for Life (BDFL), Elizabeth DuPre can take any action she deems appropriate for the safety of the tedana community, including but not limited to:

  • facilitating a conversation between the two parties involved in the violation of the code of conduct
  • requesting a contributor apologize for their behaviour
  • asking a contributor or multiple contributors to enter a cooling off period that puts a time-limited pause on a particular discussion topic
  • asking a contributor to no longer participate in the development of tedana


This Code of Conduct is adapted from the Contributor Covenant, version 1.4, available at
