Xen Project 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, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Our Standards

We believe that a Code of Conduct can help create a harassment-free environment, but is not sufficient to create a welcoming environment on its own: guidance on creating a welcoming environment, how to communicate in an effective and friendly way, etc. can be found here.

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 leadership team members 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 leadership team members 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, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.

Scope

This Code of Conduct applies within all project spaces of all sub-projects, and 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, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by the project leadership.

What to do if you witness or are subject to unacceptable behavior

Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting Conduct Team members at conduct@xenproject.org. All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. Conduct Team members are obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.

If you have concerns about any of the members of the conduct@ alias, you are welcome to contact precisely the Conduct Team member(s) of your choice.

Project leadership team members 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.

Conduct Team members

Conduct Team members are project leadership team members from any sub-project. The current list of Conduct Team members is:

  • George Dunlap <george dot dunlap at citrix dot com>
  • Ian Jackson <ian dot jackson at citrix dot com>

Conduct Team members are changed by proposing a change to this document, posted on all sub-project lists, followed by a formal global vote as outlined here.
