Drupal Releases New Code of Conduct
Five tenets to live by.
Drupal released its new Code of Conduct on Monday with the intention of preserving the community and environment that has sprung around the open source content management system.
"The new Drupal Code of Conduct states our shared ideals with respect to conduct. Think of this as coding standards for people," Moshe Weitzman said in the announcement on Drupal's website.
The Drupal Code of Conduct consists of five tenets:
- Be considerate
- Be respectful
- When we disagree, we consult others
- When we are unsure, we ask for help
- Step down considerately
If the code of conduct looks familiar, that's because it was lifted from Ubuntu. Drupal values Ubuntu's community leadership and Ubuntu uses Drupal as its CMS. The only difference in the codes of conduct is the lack of a conflict resolution section in Drupal's.
Ubuntu doesn't follow its own codeUbuntu's Mark Shuttleworth doesn't follow its own code of conduct. Just having lines of code to abide by doesn't automatically make it worthy. It needs to be implemented wisely too.
The bug was introduced back in 2009 and has been lurking around all this time.
