1 Code of Conflict 2 ---------------- 3 4 The Linux kernel development effort is a very personal process compared 5 to "traditional" ways of developing software. Your code and ideas 6 behind it will be carefully reviewed, often resulting in critique and 7 criticism. The review will almost always require improvements to the 8 code before it can be included in the kernel. Know that this happens 9 because everyone involved wants to see the best possible solution for 10 the overall success of Linux. This development process has been proven 11 to create the most robust operating system kernel ever, and we do not 12 want to do anything to cause the quality of submission and eventual 13 result to ever decrease. 14 15 If however, anyone feels personally abused, threatened, or otherwise 16 uncomfortable due to this process, that is not acceptable. If so, 17 please contact the Linux Foundation's Technical Advisory Board at 18 <firstname.lastname@example.org>, or the individual members, and they 19 will work to resolve the issue to the best of their ability. For more 20 information on who is on the Technical Advisory Board and what their 21 role is, please see: 22 http://www.linuxfoundation.org/projects/linux/tab 23 24 As a reviewer of code, please strive to keep things civil and focused on 25 the technical issues involved. We are all humans, and frustrations can 26 be high on both sides of the process. Try to keep in mind the immortal 27 words of Bill and Ted, "Be excellent to each other."
