+        <p>&nbsp;</p>         <p><em>This Code of Conduct and
Diversity Statement has not yet been made official by the community. This is a work in progress.</em></p><h1>Introduction<em><br
/></em></h1><p>This code of conduct <u>governs how we behave</u>
in any forum and whenever we will be judged by our actions. We expect it to be honoured by
everyone who participates in the Apache CouchDB community <a href="http://formally recognized
roles and responsibilities">formally</a> or informally, or claims any affiliation
with the project.</p><p>This code of conduct also <u>applies to all spaces</u>
managed by the Apache CouchDB project, including IRC, all public and private mailing lists,
the issue tracker, the wiki, the blogs, Twitter, and any other forum which the community uses
for communication. <em><span style="color: rgb(255,0,0);">TODO: An expanded code
of conduct is being drafted for events that involve physical interaction (conferences), based
on the</span> <a href="https://www">published ASF anti-harassment policy</a>.</em></p><p>This
code <u>is not exhaustive or complete</u>. It serves to distill our common understanding
of a collaborative, shared environment and goals. We expect it to be followed in spirit as
much as in the letter, so that it can enrich all of us and the technical communities in which
we participate.</p><h1>Specific Guidelines</h1><p>We strive to:</p><ol><li><strong>Be
open</strong>. We invite anyone to participate in our community. As per <a href="">Section
3 of our Project Bylaws</a>, we preferably use public methods of communication for project-related
messages, unless discussing something sensitive. This applies to messages for help or CouchDB-related
support, too; not only is a public support request much more likely to result in an answer
to a question, it also makes 
 sure that any inadvertent mistakes made by people answering will be more easily detected
and corrected.<br /><br /></li><li><strong>Be <a class="confluence-link"
href="#ProjectCodeofConductandDiversityStatement(WIP)-Endnotes" data-anchor="Endnotes" data-linked-resource-default-alias="Endnotes"
data-base-url="">empathetic</a>, welcoming, friendly,
and patient</strong>: We work together to resolve conflict, assume good intentions,
and do our best to act in an empathetic fashion. We may all experience some frustration from
time to time, but we do not allow frustration to turn into a personal attack. A community
where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one. We should be respectful
when dealing with other community members as well as with people outside our community.<br
/><br /></li><li><strong>Be collaborative.</strong> Our work
will be used by other people, and in turn we will depend on the work of others. When we make
 ing for the benefit of the project, we are willing to explain to others how it works, so
that they can build on the work to make it even better. Any decision we make will affect users
and colleagues, and we take those consequences seriously when making decisions.<br /><br
/></li><li><p><strong>Be inquisitive</strong>. <span>Nobody
knows everything! </span><span>Asking questions early avoids many problems
later, so questions are encouraged, though they may be directed to the appropriate forum.</span> <span>Those
who are asked should be responsive and helpful,</span> within the context of our shared
goal of improving Apache CouchDB.<br /><br /></p></li><li><strong>Be
careful in the words that we choose.</strong> Whether we are participating as professionals
or volunteers, we value professionalism in all interactions, and take responsibility for our
own speech. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down other participants. Harassment and
other exclusionary behaviour are not acc
 eptable. This includes, but is not limited to:<br /><br /><ul><li>Violent
threats or language directed against another person.</li><li>Sexist, racist, or
otherwise discriminatory jokes and language.</li><li>Posting sexually explicit
or violent material.</li><li>Posting (or threatening to post) other people's personally
identifying information (&quot;doxing&quot;).</li><li>Sharing private
content, such as emails sent privately or non-publicly, or unlogged forums such as IRC channel
history.</li><li>Personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms.</li><li>Unwelcome
sexual attention.</li><li>Excessive or unnecessary profanity.</li><li><span
style="font-size: 14.0px;line-height: 1.4285715;">Repeated harassment of others. In general,
if someone asks you to stop, then stop.</span></li><li>Advocating for, or
encouraging, any of the above behaviour.</li></ul><strong><br /></strong></li><li><strong>Be
concise</strong>. Keep in mind that what you write once will be read by hun
 dreds of persons. Writing a short email means people can understand the conversation as efficiently
as possible. Short emails should always strive to be empathetic, welcoming, friendly and patient.
When a long explanation is necessary, consider adding a summary.<p>Try to bring new
ideas to a conversation so that each mail adds something unique to the thread, keeping in
mind that the rest of the thread still contains the other messages with arguments that have
already been made.</p><p>Try to stay on topic, especially in discussions that
are already fairly large.<br /><br /></p></li><li><p><strong>Step
down considerately</strong><span>: Members of every project come and go. When
somebody leaves or disengages from the project they should tell people they are leaving and
take the proper steps to ensure that others can pick up where they left off.</span>
In doing so, they should remain respectful of those who continue to participate in the project
and should not misrepresent the project'
 s goals or achievements. Likewise, community members should respect any individual's choice
to leave the project.</p></li></ol><h1>Diversity Statement</h1><p>Apache
CouchDB welcomes and encourages participation by everyone. We are committed to being a
community that everyone feels good about joining. Although we may not be able to satisfy everyone,
we will always work to treat everyone well.</p><p>No matter how you identify yourself
or how others perceive you: we welcome you. Though no list can hope to be comprehensive, we
explicitly honour diversity in: age, culture, ethnicity, genotype, gender identity or expression,
language, national origin, neurotype, phenotype, political beliefs, profession, race, religion,
sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, subculture and technical ability.</p><p>Though
we welcome people fluent in all languages, Apache CouchDB development is conducted in English.</p><p>Standards
for behaviour in the Apache CouchDB community are detailed in the Code 
 of Conduct above. We expect participants in our community to meet these standards in all
their interactions and to help others to do so as well.</p><p>If you want to help
encourage a more diverse community, we encourage you to <em><span style="color: rgb(255,0,0);">TODO:
join the diversity mailing list at &lt;TBD&gt;</span></em></p><h1>Reporting
Guidelines</h1><p>While this code of conduct should be adhered to by participants,
we recognize that sometimes people may have a bad day, or be unaware of some of the guidelines
in this code of conduct. When that happens, you may reply to them and point out this code
of conduct. Such messages may be in public or in private, whatever is most appropriate. However,
regardless of whether the message is public or not, it should still adhere to the relevant
parts of this code of conduct; in particular, it should not be abusive or disrespectful. </p><p>If
you believe someone is violating this code of conduct, you may reply to them and point out

 this code of conduct. Such messages may be in public or in private, whatever is most appropriate.
Assume good faith; it is more likely that participants are unaware of their bad behaviour
than that they intentionally try to degrade the quality of the discussion. Should there be
difficulties in dealing with the situation, you may report your compliance issues in confidence
to <a href=""></a>.</p><p>If
the violation is in documentation or code, for example inappropriate pronoun usage or word
choice within official documentation, we ask that people report these privately to the project
at <a href=""></a>,
and, if they have sufficient ability within the project, to resolve or remove the concerning
material, being mindful of the perspective of the person originally reporting the issue.</p><h1>Endnotes</h1><p>This
Code defines <strong>empathy</strong> as &quot;a vicarious 
 participation in the emotions, ideas, or opinions of others; the ability to imagine oneself
in the condition or predicament of another.&quot; <strong>Empathetic</strong>
is the adjectival form of empathy.</p><p>This statement thanks the following,
