As part of the latest Dancer2 release, and part of the upcoming Dancer
release, we have added our policy document, which currently indicates our
Standards of Conduct.
The Standards of Conduct are the standards by which we behave with each
other in the community. These are the standards by which we hold each other
We promote the Dancer community as a safe space for everyone. We promote
self-awareness, consideration, and self-regulation.
We are very strict with our policy and will make sure to enforce it in
every realm in which the community comes together. This includes the
mailing list, our IRC channel, and Dancer conferences.
Please let us know if any issue comes up. We're always here.
I'm including the entire text here, in its current released version as of
this date, but you can find it at Dancer::Policy
The Dancer Core Devs.
STANDARDS OF CONDUCT
These standards applies anywhere the community comes together as a
group. This includes, but is not limited to, the Dancer IRC channel, the
Dancer mailing list, Dancer hackathons, and Dancer conferences.
* Always be civil.
* Heed the moderators.
* Abuse is not tolerated.
Civility is simple: stick to the facts while avoiding demeaning remarks
and sarcasm. It is not enough to be factual. You must also be civil.
Responding in kind to incivility is not acceptable.
If the list moderators tell you that you are not being civil, carefully
consider how your words have appeared before responding in any way. You
may protest, but repeated protest in the face of a repeatedly reaffirmed
decision is not acceptable.
Unacceptable behavior will result in a public and clearly identified
warning. Repeated unacceptable behavior will result in removal from the
mailing list and revocation of any commit bit. The first removal is for
one month. Subsequent removals will double in length. After six months
with no warning, a user's ban length is reset. Removals, like warnings,
The list of moderators consists of all active core developers. This
includes, in alphabetical order, Alberto Simões, David Precious, Mickey
Nasriachi, Russell Jenkins, Sawyer X, Stefan Hornburg (Racke), Steven
Humphrey, and Yanick Champoux.
This list might additionally grow to active members of the community who
have stepped up to help handle abusive behavior. If this should happen,
this document would be updated to include their names.
Additionally, it's important to understand the self-regulating nature we
foster at the Dancer community. This means anyone and everyone in the
community - in the channel, on the list, at an event - has the ability
to call out unacceptable behavior and incivility to others in the
Moderators are responsibe for issuing warnings and take disciplenary
actions, but anyone may - and is encouraged - to publicly make note of
unacceptable treatment of others.
As a core principle, abuse is never tolerated. One cannot berate,
insult, debase, deride, put-down, or vilify anyone, or act towards
anyone in a way intending to hurt them.
The community specifically considers as abuse any attempts to otherize
anyone, whether by their technical skill, knowledge, gender, sexual
orientation, or any other characteristic.
The community aims to maintain a safe space for everyone, in any forum
it has. If you ever feel this core principle has been compromised, you
are strongly urged to contact a moderator. We are always here.
Remember, this is your community, as much as it is anyone else's.
This policy has been adopted and adapted from the policy available for
the Perl language development, provided by p5p (the Perl 5 Porters).
The original inspiration policy document can be read at perlpolicy.
