Mozilla is going to explore developing a Code of Conduct for our community and contributors, using the Ubuntu project Code of Conduct and supporting documents as an initial template. We’re looking to create something aspirational rather than proscriptive, and the Ubuntu documents provide a tried and proven starting point.
The next step is to look at those documents and see what we need to do to adapt them to work for the Mozilla project. For this, I need your help.
I’ve started a thread over in the mozilla.governance newsgroup to get the process started. It includes a link to a rough first draft of a Code and an explanation of where that draft came from.
Please note that all discussion related to the development of a Code of Conduct should happen in that thread/newsgroup. If you post comments here, I’ll just ask you to move ’em over there 🙂
Please, please try to make time to participate if you can. This is a big and very important step for the Mozilla project and our community.
