<h1>Django Code of Conduct - DRAFT</h1>
<h2 class="deck">
You're looking at a draft Code of Conduct proposed for adoption by the
Django core team and the Django Software Foundation. Think of this as a
"beta" release: we've written it, and we like it, but we want community
feedback before we "check it in" (that is, adopt it formally).
So please check out the draft text, read the FAQ below, and let us know
what you think using the feedback form at the bottom of the page.
<p>Like the technical community as a whole, the Django team and community is made up
of a mixture of professionals and volunteers from all over the world, working on
every aspect of the mission - including mentorship, teaching and connecting
<p>Diversity is one of our huge strengths, but it can also lead to communication
issues and unhappiness. To that end, we have a few ground rules that we ask
people to adhere to when they’re participating within this community and
project. These rules apply equally to founders, mentors and those seeking help
and guidance.</p>
<p>This isn’t an exhaustive list of things that you can’t do. Rather, take it in
the spirit in which it’s intended - a guide to make it easier to enrich all of
us and the technical communities in which we participate.</p>
<p>This code of conduct applies to all spaces managed by the Django project or
Django Software Foundation. This includes IRC, the mailing lists, the issue
tracker, DSF events, and any other forums created by the project team
which the community uses for communication.</p>
<li><strong>Be welcoming, friendly, and patient.</strong></li>
<li><strong>Be considerate.</strong> Your work will be used by other people, and you in turn will
depend on the work of others. Any decision you take will affect users and
colleagues, and you should take those consequences into account when making
decisions. Remember that we're a world-wide community, so you might not be
communicating in someone else's primary language.</li>
<li><strong>Be respectful.</strong> Not all of us will agree all the time, 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. Members of the Django
community should be respectful when dealing with other members as well as with
people outside the Django community.</li>
<li><strong>Be careful in the words that you choose.</strong> We are a community of professionals,
and we conduct ourselves professionally. Be kind to others. Do not insult or
put down other participants. Sexist, racist, and other discriminatory jokes
are not welcome, nor is harassment or other exclusionary behavior.</li>
<li><strong>When we disagree, try to understand why.</strong> Disagreements, both social and
technical, happen all the time and Django is no exception. It is important that
we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively. Remember that we’re
different. The strength of Django comes from its varied community, people from a
wide range of backgrounds. Different people have different perspectives on
issues. Being unable to understand why someone holds a viewpoint doesn’t mean
that they’re wrong. Don’t forget that it is human to err and blaming each other
doesn’t get us anywhere, rather offer to help resolving issues and to help learn
from mistakes.</li>

<h2 id="faq">FAQ <a href="#faq">¶</a></h2>
<p>Again, we'd love feedback. But before we get to that, please read the FAQ below;
we've tried to anticipate some of the common question and answer 'em quickly so
that you don't have to wait for us to get back to you:</p>
<h3 id="why-adopt">Why are you adopting a Code of Conduct? <a href="#why-adopt">¶</a></h3>
<p>We think the Django community is awesome. If you're familiar with the Django
community, you'll probably notice that the text above basically matches what
we already do. Think of this as documentation: we're taking implicit
expectations about behavior and making them explicit.</p>
<p>We're doing this because the Django community is growing faster than any of
us could have anticipated. This is on balance a very positive thing, but
as we've grown past the point where it's possible to know the whole community
we think it's very important to be clear about our values.</p>
<p>We know that the Django community is open, friendly, and welcoming. We want to
make sure everyone else knows it too.</p>
<h3 id="what-does-it-mean">What does it mean to "adopt" a Code of Conduct? <a href="#what-does-it-mean">¶</a></h3>
<p>For the most part, we don't think it means large changes. We think that the text
does a really good job describing the way the Django community already conducts
itself. We expect that most people will simple continue to behave in the
awesome way they have for years.</p>
<p>However, we do expect that people will abide by the spirit and words of the CoC
when in "official" Django spaces. We're proposing that this code — or rather,
the final draft of it — be adopted simultaneously by the Django core team and by
the Django Software Foundation. So that means that it'll apply both in community
spaces *and* at DSF events.</p>
<p>In practice, this means mailing lists (django-users, django-developers, etc.),
the various Django IRC channels (<tt>#django</tt>, <tt>#django-dev</tt>, etc.), bug
tracking and code review tools, and "official" Django events such as sprints.</p>
<h3 id="dsf-events">What about events funded by the Django Software Foundation? <a href="#dsf-events">¶</a></h3>
<p>This Code of Conduct also covers any events that the DSF funds. However, events
funded by the DSF already
<a href="">require a code of conduct</a>
isn't this redundant?</p>
<p>No: there's a difference between the two, and they're complimentary.</p>
<p>This Code of Conduct is all about how we interact as a community. It's about
saying that the Django community will be open, friendly and welcoming.
The core issue is about ensuring the conversations we have are productive
and inviting for all.</p>
<p>Real-life events, however, require a bit more care. The DSF wants to be sure
that any events it funds have policies and procedures in place for handling
harassment. It's especially important to us that real-life events take steps to
protect the physical and mental security of their participants.</p>
<p>So the DSF will require that any events it funds have some sort of anti-
harassment policy in place. The DSF thinks the
<a href="">Ada Initiative's template</a>
is pretty good, but we're open to alternatives.</p>
<h3 id="violations">What happens if someone violates the Code of Conduct? <a href="#violations">¶</a></h3>
<p>Our intent is that the anyone in the community can stand up for this code,
and direct people who're unaware to this document. If that doesn't work,
or if you need more help, we have several channels you can use:</p>
<li>You can contact the DSF at <i></i>. This is our
preferred contact mechanism; it'll help us respond as quick as possible
and get your issue resolved smoothly.</li>
<li>At in-person events, you should contact event staff. They'll be there to help
physically, and can get Django people involved if needed.</li>
<li>On IRC, all Django core developers are "voiced"; you can contact any of them
(publicly or privately).</li>
<p>What happens next depends on the context and the specific action. If someone
points out a (potential) violation to us we'll look into it, speak to everyone
involved, and take action if we need to. This action could range from a simple
"hey, not cool" to bans from channels/lists and/or in-person events, if
necessary. We hope it won't be; we expect that the act of publishing a CoC will
help prevent over- the-line behavior in the first place.</p>
<h3 id="why-do-we-need">Why do we need a Code of Conduct? Everyone knows not to be a jerk. <a href="#why-do-we-need">¶</a></h3>
<p>Sadly, not everyone knows this.</p>
<p>However, even if everyone was kind, everyone was compassionate, and everyone was
familiar with codes of conduct it would still be incumbent upon our community to
publish our own. Maintaining a code of conduct forces us to consider and
articulate what kind of community we want to be, and serves as a constant
reminder to put our best foot forward. But most importantly, it serves as a
signpost to people looking to join our community that we feel these values are
<h3 id="free-speech">This is censorship! I have the right to say whatever I want! <a href="#free-speech">¶</a></h3>
<p>You do -- in <em>your</em> space. If you'd like to hang out in <em>our</em> spaces (as
clarified above), we have some simple guidelines to follow. If you want to, for
example, form a group where Django is discussed using language inappropriate for
general channels then nobody's stopping you. We respect your right to establish
whatever codes of conduct you want in the spaces that belong to you. Please
honor this Code of Conduct in our spaces.</p>
<h2 id="feedback">Feedback <a href="#feedback">¶</a></h2>
As we said above, this is a rough draft. We want to know what you think before
we adopt this. Let us know about your questions, comments, concerns, or
criticism. We'll try to address all the feedback we get via email, or an
edit to the draft, or both.
<p>Thank you!</p>
