Code of Conduct
A manual to sign the Kick, courtesy of Ubuntu-sees
Ubuntu is an African concept of ‘humanity for others’. It is ‘the belief in a universal bow to share that it connects all the humanity’. The same ideas are central for the form in which the Ubuntu community collaborates. The members of the Ubuntu community need to work efficiently together, and this code of conduct establishes the “basic rules” for our cooperation.
The name of Ubuntu for the distribution was chosen because it catches the spirit perfectly to share and to cooperate that it is the heart of the movement of open code. In the world of Free Software, it is collaborated freely of voluntary way to construct software to the benefit of all. The work of others improves, which has been given freely, and this way the improvements share in the same way.
That collaboration depends on the good relations between the developers. For this aim, we decided the following code of conduct to help to define the forms of how the collaboration and the cooperation would have to work.
If you wish to sign the conduct code, you can sign the copy of Canonical that is here.
This Code of Conduct covers your behavior as member with the Ubuntu Community, in any forum, list of mail, wiki, website, channel IRC, feast of installation, public meeting or private correspondence. The Communal Council of Ubuntu will arbitrate in any dispute on the conduct of a member of the community.
- I am considered. Your work will be used on the other people, and your a your time you will depend on the work of others. Any decision that you take will affect users and colleagues, and we hoped that you consider those consequences when you are deciding. For example, when the repositorios are frozen, please you do not raise new versions of a critical software of system, since another people will be proving the frozen system and she will not be waiting for great changes.
- I know respectful. The Ubuntu community and its members deal themselves with respect. Anyone can make a contribution of value to Ubuntu. We can always not agree, but the discord is not an excuse for a bad behavior and bad modal. All we experienced something of frustration from time to time, but we cannot allow that the frustration becomes a personal attack. It is important to remember that a community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not productive. We hoped that the members of the Ubuntu community are respectful when they deal as much with other contribuidores as with people outside the Ubuntu project and users of Ubuntu.
- I know collaborative. Ubuntu and the free community are based on the collaboration and working together. The collaboration reduces the redundancy of the work done in the world of free Software, and improves the quality of produced software. You would have to aim to as much collaborate with other supports of Ubuntu, as the community that feeds Ubuntu that is interested at work that you do. Your work would have transparently to be done and the patches of Ubuntu would have to be given back to the community when they are done, not only when the distribution is sent. If you wish to work in new code for existing projects that feed Ubuntu, at least mantén to those projects informed into your ideas and progresses. It could not be possible to obtain consensus of the projects that still feed Ubuntu or on your colleagues on the correct form to implement an idea, so you do not feel forced to obtain the agreement before beginning, but at least mantén to the external world informed into your work, and public your work so that it allows others to prove it, to discuss it and to contribute to your efforts.
- When you do not decide with something, it consults with others. The discords, as much politicians as technicians, happen all along and the Ubuntu community is not the exception. The objective is not to avoid the discords or to delay the points of view but to solve them in constructive form. You would have to go to the community and the communitarian process to look for advice and to solve discords. We have the Technical board and the Communal Council, both of which will help to decide the right path for Ubuntu. Also there are several Teams of Projects and Leaders of Project, that could help you to that DES tells you that direction will be most acceptable. If querés to really go you by another way, we animated to you to that you make a derivational contribution or you contribute a group of alternative packages using the frame of the Management of Packages of Ubuntu, so that the community can prove your changes and ideas by themselves and contribute to the discussion.
- When you are not safe, it requests aid. Nobody knows everything, and it does not hope that nobody is perfect in the community of Ubuntu (excepting by all means to the SABDFL). Making questions many problems in the way are avoided, and therefore the questions are encouraged. Those which it is asked to him must be of aid and give answers. Nevertheless, when a question becomes is due to have well-taken care of to do it in the appropriate forum. Questions outside subject, as orders of aid in a list of mail for developer, remove of a productive discussion.
- Break ties to you with consideration. The developers in each project go and come and in Ubuntu this is not different. When you leave or you separate of a project, absolutely or partly, we asked to you that you do it so that you diminish the interruption of the project. This means that him tenés that to say to the people who you are going away and to take the appropriate steps to assure to you that they can begin where you left.
