Draft Events Code of Conduct
This draft Events Code of Conduct has been created by the Code of Conduct Working Group following a lengthy research and development process. If it is adopted, it will apply to all future GNOME events.
The working group is currently seeking feedback on the draft from the GNOME community. If you have comments on the draft, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org before January 1st 2018. The working group will take this feedback into account before sending the draft to the GNOME Foundation Board of Directors.
Events Code of Conduct Elements
The draft Events Code of Conduct consists of the following five elements:
- This will apply to all GNOME events, including hackfests and release parties.
If the Code of Conduct comes into effect, it will be hosted at https://wiki.gnome.org/CodeOfConduct/Events.
- This details the steps that conference organisers ought to take, as well as modifications which need to be made to the Code of Conduct for larger events like conferences.
If the Events Code of Conduct comes into effect, this will be hosted at https://wiki.gnome.org/CodeOfConduct/Conferences.
- This details a sample photography policy, but may need to be adjusted on a country-by-country basis due to differing laws on photography
If the Photography Policy comes into effect, this will be hosted at https://wiki.gnome.org/CodeOfConduct/PhotographyPolicy
- The creation of a Code of Conduct Committee
- Like all committees, this will be created by the GNOME Foundation Board of Directors.
If created, the committee will have its home page at https://wiki.gnome.org/CodeOfConduct/Committee
- These describe how the Code of Conduct Committee and the Code of Conduct Teams that may be set up for conferences should respond to incidents when they happen
If approved, these will be hosted at https://wiki.gnome.org/CodeOfConduct/Committee/ResponseGuidelines.
