Alpine Linux Code of Conduct

This Code of Conduct applies to participants in Alpine projects, such as the Alpine Linux distribution.

Diversity and inclusion make the Alpine community strong. Anybody who wishes to participate in the Alpine community are welcome as long as they follow this Code of Conduct.

Our goal is to maintain a safe, helpful and friendly Alpine community for everyone, regardless of experience, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality or any other protected categories under applicable law.

Community Guidelines

  1. The Alpine community is a public space. Remember that actions influence the public perception of the project.

  2. Be civil and tolerant towards others.

  3. Do not make things personal and do not take things personally.

  4. Avoid foul or abusive language. As cultural standards differ, what may seem as a very mild statement can be perceived by others as highly abusive.

  5. Avoid controversial topics unless directly relevant to the project, unless in an offtopic channel, such as the #alpine-offtopic IRC channel.

  6. While conflict is inevitable, please work through the conflict in a transparent manner, so that all participants understand the resolution.

Explicitly Disallowed Conduct

  1. Discrimination based on, but not limited to, gender, gender identity, race, nationality, sexuality, religion, age, physical disability, mental disability, init system preference, body type or size is not allowed.

  2. Bullying or systematic harassment of other participants is not allowed.

  3. Inciting, supporting or otherwise condoning any form of discrimination or harassment within the project or towards specific project participants is not allowed.
