# Developer Tools Code of Conduct

This file describes the Developer Tools (aka "DevTools") code of conduct.

# Conduct
6
7
We are committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming
8
environment for all, regardless of level of experience, gender, gender
9
identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal
10
appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality, or
11
other similar characteristic.
12
13
On IRC, please avoid using overtly sexual nicknames or other nicknames
14
that might detract from a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for
15
all.
16
17
Please be kind and courteous. There’s no need to be mean or rude.
18
19
Respect that people have differences of opinion and that every design
20
or implementation choice carries a trade-off and numerous costs. There
21
is seldom a right answer.
22
23
We will exclude you from interaction if you insult, demean or harass
24
anyone. That is not welcome behaviour. We interpret the term
25
“harassment” as including the definition in the
26
[Citizen Code of Conduct](http://citizencodeofconduct.org/); if you
27
have any lack of clarity about what might be included in that concept,
28
please read their definition. In particular, we don’t tolerate
29
behavior that excludes people in socially marginalized groups.
30
31
Private harassment is also unacceptable. No matter who you are, if you
32
feel you have been or are being harassed or made uncomfortable by a
33
community member, please contact one of the moderators (see below)
34
immediately. Whether you’re a regular contributor or a newcomer, we
35
care about making this community a safe place for you and we’ve got
36
your back.
37
38
Likewise any spamming, trolling, flaming, baiting or other
39
attention-stealing behaviour is not welcome.

# Moderation
42
43
These are the policies for upholding our community’s standards of
44
conduct. If you feel that a thread needs moderation, please use the
45
point of contact for the medium in which you're communicating:
46
47
* For one of the IRC channels, contact a channel operator (they
48
have an "@" in front of their names);
49
* Bugzilla and the dev-developer-tools mailing list, contact
50
[inclusion@mozilla.com](mailto:inclusion@mozilla.com);
51
* The debugger.html repository on GitHub has [its own code of conduct](https://github.com/firefox-devtools/debugger.html/blob/master/CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md), but you can also
52
email [inclusion@mozilla.com](mailto:inclusion@mozilla.com).
53
54
Remarks that violate these standards of conduct, including hateful,
55
hurtful, oppressive, or exclusionary remarks, are not
56
allowed. (Cursing is allowed, but never targeting another user, and
57
never in a hateful manner.)
58
59
Remarks that moderators find inappropriate, whether listed in the code
60
of conduct or not, are also not allowed.
61
62
Moderators will first respond to such remarks with a warning.
63
64
If the warning is unheeded, then on IRC the user will be “kicked,”
65
i.e., kicked out of the communication channel to cool off.
66
67
If the user comes back and continues to make trouble, they will be
68
banned, i.e., indefinitely excluded. On other communications media,
69
such as bugzilla or mailing lists, it will be up to the moderator's
70
discretion whether a user will be banned after the first warning.
71
72
Moderators may choose at their discretion to un-ban the user if it was
73
a first offense and they offer the offended party a genuine apology.
74
75
If a moderator bans someone and you think it was unjustified, please
76
take it up with that moderator, or with a different moderator, in
77
private. Complaints about bans in-channel (or on the mailing list or
78
in the bug tracker) are not allowed.
79
80
Moderators are held to a higher standard than other community
81
members. If a moderator creates an inappropriate situation, they
82
should expect less leeway than others.
83
84
In this community we strive to go the extra step to look out for
85
each other. Don’t just aim to be technically unimpeachable, try to be
86
your best self. In particular, avoid flirting with offensive or
87
sensitive issues, particularly if they’re off-topic; this all too
88
often leads to unnecessary fights, hurt feelings, and damaged trust;
89
worse, it can drive people away from the community entirely.
90
91
And if someone takes issue with something you said or did, resist the
92
urge to be defensive. Just stop doing what it was they complained
93
about and apologize. Even if you feel you were misinterpreted or
94
unfairly accused, chances are good there was something you could’ve
95
communicated better — remember that it’s your responsibility to make
96
your fellow devtoolers comfortable. Everyone wants to get along and we
97
are all here first and foremost because we want to talk about cool
98
technology. You will find that people will be eager to assume good
99
intent and forgive as long as you earn their trust.
100
101
The enforcement policies listed above apply to all official DevTools
102
venues; including official IRC channels (those starting with
103
"#devtools"); GitHub repositories associated with DevTools; and
104
DevTools bugs in bugzilla.
