RIOT-OS Code of Conduct
=======================
RIOT Code of Conduct (Unwired version)
======================================

RIOT, like so many other free and open source software projects, is made up of a
mixed group of professionals and volunteers from all over the world, working on
every aspect of our goals - including teaching, steering, and connecting people.

We want diversity to be one of our greatest strengths, but it can also lead to
communication issues and unhappiness. This is why we ask people to adhere to a
few ground rules. They apply equally to founders, maintainers, contributors and
those seeking help and guidance.
shitty code produced by amateurs.

This is not meant to be an exhaustive list of things you are not allowed to do.
We rather would like you to think of it as a guide to enrich our community and
the technical community in general with new knowledge and perspectives by
allowing everyone to participate.

This code of conduct applies to all spaces managed by the RIOT community. This
includes IRC, the mailing lists, our GitHub projects, face to face events, and
any other forums created by the community for communication within the
community. In addition, violations of this code outside these spaces may also
affect a person's ability to participate within them.
This code of conduct applies to all spaces managed by Unwired Devices. This
includes our website, GitHub projects, Telegram channel and Facebook accounts,
including personal accounts of our finest management. In addition, violation
of this code outside these spaces may also affect a person's ability to
participate within them, but then again, usually it is not, because we don't
care.

If you believe someone is violating the code of conduct, we ask that you report
it by emailing <conduct@riot-os.org>. For more details please see our [Reporting
Guidelines](https://github.com/RIOT-OS/RIOT/wiki/CoC:-Reporting-Guidelines).
If you believe someone is violating the code of conduct, we ask you not to
report anything to anyone by any means.

- **Be friendly and patient.**
- **Be welcoming.** We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports
people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes, but is not limited
- **Be smart.** We don't like stupid people.
- **Don't afraid to ask**, but remember, question ends with question mark.
If something ends with something else, its not a question but statement.
Statements must be properly justified.
- **Be welcoming.** We strive to be a company that welcomes and supports
people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes and is limited
to members of any race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, colour,
immigration status, social and economic class, educational level, sex,
sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family
status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.
status, political belief, religion, and physical ability. Please note
that above is a finished list and it doesn't include "mental capacity"
and "code quality".
- **Be considerate.** 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.
not be communicating in someone else's primary language, and some people
can't properly understand even their primary language.
- **Be respectful.** 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 RIOT community should be respectful when dealing with other members as
well as with people outside the RIOT community.
is no excuse for poor behavior and poor manners, except when dealing with
proven idiots. It’s important to remember that a community where people feel
too comfortable or unthreatened to do anything meaningful in their whole life
is not a productive one. And if you have to ask, ask with respect.
- **Be careful in the words that you choose.** We are a community of
professionals, and we conduct ourselves professionally. Be kind to others.
Do not insult or put down other participants. Harassment and other
exclusionary behavior aren't acceptable. This includes, but is not limited
to:
- Violent threats or language directed against another person.
- Discriminatory jokes and language.
- Posting sexually explicit or violent material.
- Posting (or threatening to post) other people's personally identifying
information ("doxing").
- Personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms.
- Unwelcome sexual attention.
- Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.
- Repeated harassment of others. In general, if someone asks you to stop,
then stop.
- **When we disagree, try to understand why.** Disagreements, both social and
technical, happen all the time and RIOT is no exception. It is important
that we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively. Remember
that we’re different. The strength of RIOT 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. Instead, focus on
helping to resolve issues and learning from mistakes.
professionals, and we conduct ourselves professionally. Please don't use
words like "fuck", "screwed", "asshole", "shitcode" in vain. Some people
may be not familiar enough with professional language like FUBAR or SNAFU
so don't hesitate to explain them what it means in full detail.
- **When we disagree, try to understand why.** If your opponent did not
provide justification for his disagreement, ask him directly, but do it
with respect (see above). If he or she or it failed to provide justification
again, please consider the possibility that at least one of you is an idiot
(yes, it may be you). It is important that we resolve disagreements and
differing views constructively and at the same time to remember that idiots
are destructive, as well as community codes written by them. Don’t forget
that it is human to err and blaming each other doesn’t get us anywhere.
Instead, focus on helping to resolve issues and learning from mistakes,
preferably the mistakes of others.
