Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct

Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to make participation in our project, and our community, a harassment-free experience for everyone regardless of:

  • Age
  • Body size
  • Disability
  • Ethnicity
  • Sex characteristics
  • Gender identity and expression
  • Level of experience
  • Education
  • Socioeconomic status
  • Nationality
  • Personal appearance
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sexual identity and orientation

Our Standards

Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language.
  • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences.
  • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism.
  • Focusing on what is best for the community.
  • Showing empathy towards other community members.

Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

  • The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances.
  • Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks.
  • Public or private harassment.
  • Publishing others' private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission.
  • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting.

Our Responsibilities

Project 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.

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


This Code of Conduct applies within all project spaces. It also applies when an individual is representing the project or its community in public spaces. Examples of representing a project or community include:

  • Using an official project e-mail address.
  • Posting via an official social media account.
  • Acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event.

Project maintainers may further define and clarify what is meant by representation of a project.


Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the project's leadership.
