Discussing things "in the open" is important. But it does not necessarily engender trust in a community, especially in the absence of cognizant moderation.

Unfortunately, open discussions sometimes lead to a culture of distrust. This happens when individuals in power publicly humiliate, intimidate, or even bully others in the community. Often this happens unconsciously or as a result of a poor choice of words. Regardless of whether the intent is actual or perceived, the damage to the community is the same, and must be quickly dealt with before it festers into a culture of enmity.

The project maintainer, with the support of the core reviewers, pledges to lead by example, as well as to hold contributors accountable for creating a positive, constructive, and productive culture. Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated.

If a member of the Falcon community behaves unacceptably toward you or another individual, please contact Kurt Griffiths at
