At the Joomla! World Conference in November 2014, a team was tasked by the Leadership Summit with reviewing and updating the Joomla! Code of Conduct which is presently available at http://www.joomla.org/about-joomla/the-project/code-of-conduct.html.
The team has worked since that date to update and refine the Code of Conduct, taking into account the rise of social media and the need to update the policy in line with the size and diversity of our community.
Research has been carried out which includes drawing from how other Open Source projects manage volunteer and leadership conduct, identifying example policies, reviewing procedures for dealing with breaches of policies, and identifying what might be the most appropriate way of deciding and implementing sanctions at varying levels.
Following a two week period of feedback from the Leadership Teams, we now request feedback from the Joomla! community for a further period of two weeks, where we welcome comments on the base English language document and translated versions.
To access the base document, please visit: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mUCWA2TDJ90KxuL89-oh2s9ZL1R34SBJZJtJihfeaJ8/edit?usp=sharing – translated versions will be linked to from this document.
If you would like to help translate this document into your language, please join the translation room on Glip by visiting www.glip.com/joomla and signing up for an account, then join the room called ‘Translation Room’. The team will be able to support you in translating the document.
Community feedback will be open until Friday, 12th June 2015 at which point the final version of the Code of Conduct Policy will be presented to the Leadership Teams for formal adoption by vote. If you would like to make suggestions, please use the ‘comment’ feature on Google Docs. For further discussion please use this forum post: http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=704&t=888947
