Amazon Open Source Code of Conduct
This code of conduct provides guidance on participation in Amazon-managed open source communities, outlines the process for reporting unacceptable behavior, and documents consequenes for unacceptable behavior. As an organization and community, we are committed to providing an inclusive environment for everyone.
We as members, contributors, and leaders pledge to make participation in our communities a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, visible or invisible disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, caste, color, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
We pledge to act and interact in ways that contribute to open, welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and healthy communities.
We believe peer to peer discussions, feedback, and corrections can help build a stronger, safer, and more welcoming community. If you see someone behaving disrespectfully, you are encouraged to respectfully discourage them from such behavior. Expect that others in the community wish to help keep the community respectful and welcome your input in doing so. We seek to resolve conflicts peacefully and in a manner that is positive for the community.
As contributors, members, or bystanders we each individually have the responsibility to behave professionally and respectfully at all times. We are kind to others and careful in the words that we choose.
Examples of behavior that contributes to a positive environment for our communities include, but are not limited to:
- Demonstrating empathy and kindness towards other people
- Being respectful of differing opinions, viewpoints, and experiences
- Giving and gracefully accepting constructive and actionable feedback
- Accepting accountability and responsibility, apologizing to those affected by our mistakes, and learning from the experience
- Prioritizing the health and well-being of the overall community over individual actions
Examples of unacceptable behaviors include, but are not limited to:
- The use of violent threats, abusive, insulting, discriminatory, or derogatory content
- Offensive comments related to age, body size, visible or invisible disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, caste, color, religion, or sexual identity and orientation
- The use of sexualized language or imagery and sexual attention or advances of any kind
- Public or private harassment including, but not limited to, intimidation, stalking, repeated inappropriate social contact, and unwanted communication. In general, if someone asks you to stop, then stop.
- Berating others because you are not getting what you want. It is not acceptable to demand immediate resolution of your issues, to derail other issues “just to make your point”, or to use personal insults when you feel like you are being ignored.
- Publishing private information, such as physical or electronic address, without explicit permission
- Advocating for or encouraging any of the above behaviors.
Community maintainers (in coordination with the Amazon Open Source team) are responsible for clarifying and enforcing our standards of acceptable behavior and will take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any behavior that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
Community maintainers and the Amazon Open Source team have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, decline, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, pull requests, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, and will communicate reasons for moderation decisions when appropriate.
This Code of Conduct applies within all community spaces, and also applies when an individual is representing the community. Examples of representing our community include using official e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event.
Community maintainers (in coordination with the Amazon Open Source team) will follow these Enforcement Guidelines in determining the consequences for any action they deem in violation of this Code of Conduct:
Community Impact: Use of inappropriate language or other behavior deemed unprofessional or unwelcome in the community.
Consequence: A private, written warning, providing clarity around the nature of the violation and an explanation of why the behavior was inappropriate. A public apology may be requested.
Community Impact: A violation through a single incident or series of actions.
Consequence: A written warning with consequences for continued behavior. No interaction with the people involved, including unsolicited interaction with those enforcing the Code of Conduct, for a specified period of time. This includes avoiding interactions in community spaces as well as external channels like social media. Violating these terms may lead to a temporary or permanent ban.
3. Temporary Ban
Community Impact: A serious violation of community standards, including sustained inappropriate behavior.
Consequence: A temporary ban from any sort of interaction or public communication with the community for a specified period of time. No public or private interaction with the people involved, including unsolicited interaction with those enforcing the Code of Conduct, is allowed during this period. Violating these terms may lead to a permanent ban.
4. Permanent Ban
Community Impact: Demonstrating a pattern of violation of community standards, including sustained inappropriate behavior, harassment of an individual, or aggression toward or disparagement of classes of individuals.
Consequence: A permanent ban from any sort of public interaction within the community.
Reporting Code of Conduct Issues:
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting email@example.com. All complaints will be reviewed and investigated promptly and fairly. Any member of the community may report a Code of Conduct issue, even if they were not the target of unacceptable behavior or harassment. Reports will be kept private and secure.
