OARC Code of Conduct

Statement of Values

The OARC aims to promote the development of open, interoperable AR Cloud technologies which protect and preserve our individual and collective freedoms, privacy, dignity and opportunity.

Everyone who wants to contribute needs to feel welcome and empowered to participate. Towards that end we, the members of the OARC, pledge to cultivate a community which welcomes and respects every participant, regardless of:

Conduct Expectations

Examples of conduct which help promote an open and welcoming community:

Examples of unacceptable conduct from participants:

OARC Shared Responsibilities

Participants and especially group leaders (board members, working group council officers, working group secretaries) are responsible for ongoing clarification of what constitutes acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

The OARC groups leaders (board members, working group council officers, working group secretaries ) have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.

Scope

This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces, and also public spaces where an individual is representing OARC and/or its community. This includes communication where acting as an official representative of OARC and/or it’s community. Communication includes channels such as: e-mail, slack, other chat tools, trello, message boards, post on the official website, and acting as a representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by project leaders (board members, working-group leaders, working-group secretaries).

Enforcement

Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the oarc team at openarcloudassociation@gmail.com . All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The OARC leadership (board members, working-group leaders, working-group secretaries) is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.

Project leadership who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the project’s leadership.

With this said we encourage our members to try and handle minor instances of bad or uncomfortable behaviour from other members through face to face dialogue with the one or ones who transgressed on the base assumption that adults will mostly be able to correct their behaviour when being informed that they have stepped over a line. In most cases dealing with interpersonal problems face to face builds mutual trust and respect between individuals and within groups.

OARC fully understands that not everyone is comfortable with that type of face to face dialogue, in which case no one should feel discouraged from report anything they experience as unacceptable.
