Date: Tue, 13 Mar 2007 22:25:36
1 Triggered by recent examples of bad behavior and dissatisfaction among
2 developers and users alike, the Gentoo Council has drafted a new Code of
3 Conduct (see that will be
4 enforced for both developers and users.</b> The draft version of the
5 Code of Conduct is currently being discussed on the Gentoo-dev mailing
6 list. To subscribe, send an email to

10 The Code of Conduct will be voted upon by the Gentoo Council Thursday,
11 March 15th; implementation will be immediate upon final approval. The
12 Code of Conduct describes what the Gentoo Council has deemed acceptable
13 and unacceptable behavior. It also describes the punishment that will be
14 enforced if the Code of Conduct is breached.
16 The Gentoo Council expects the Code of Conduct to end the bad behavior
17 shown by some and hope it will help Developer Relations enforce good
18 behavior among the developers.
20 The Gentoo Council has scheduled a Question and Answer session
21 Wednesday, March 14th between 2100UTC and 2300UTC in the #Gentoo-council
22 channel on the Freenode IRC network, irc:// We welcome
