Mailvelope Code of Conduct

Last modified: September 9, 2021

This Code of Conduct applies to all of us: Mailvelope staff, contributors, maintainers and participants in any campaigns, projects, and communities under the Mailvelope name.

This Code of Conduct covers our behavior in any ticketing system, social network, forum, mailing list, wiki, web site, private correspondence, online and offline event or meeting.

Anti-harassment policy

We pledge to respect everyone who contributes by posting issues, updating documentation, submitting pull requests, providing feedback in comments, translating content, producing videos and graphics and any other activities.

We welcome contributions from everyone regardless of geographical location, age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, disability, physical appearance, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views.

We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form: personal attacks, hate speech, trolling, baiting, spamming, any intentional form of discrimination, unwelcome sexual attention or imagery, deliberate intimidation, physical threats and stalking.

Serious or persistent offenders will be temporarily or permanently banned from communicating through Mailvelope's systems and events. These rules may be enforced at the discretion of Mailvelope staff by removing issues, comments, blocking or reporting accounts and banning from online or public meetings.

Interaction principles

We pledge to adhere to following principles when interacting with each other:

Be respectful: inevitably there will be people with whom we may disagree or find it difficult to cooperate. We accept to remain respectful.

Agree to disagree: decisions are often a difficult choice between competing priorities and there are many ways of reaching our common goals. If we disagree, we will do so politely.

Assume good faith: when we disagree we do not assume the worst, it is unlikely a participant is intentionally trying to degrade the quality of a discussion or product.

Welcome other perspectives: we actively seek to be open to ideas that make our own ideas better. We empower others to speak. We welcome contributions from everyone as long as they interact constructively with our community.

Be concise: we try to be concise and avoid repeating what has been said already. We try to stay on topic, especially in discussions that are already fairly large.

Be transparent: we are open about what we are working on to allow others to participate. We are also transparent about our mistakes to allow others to learn and avoid repeating them.
