Code of Conduct
Our Pledge
In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as
contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and
our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body
size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of
experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance,
race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
Our Standards
Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment
* Using welcoming and inclusive language
* Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
* Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
* Focusing on what is best for the community
* Showing empathy towards other community members
Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:
* The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or
* Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
* Public or private harassment
* Publishing others' private information, such as a physical or electronic
address, without explicit permission
* Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a
professional setting
Our Responsibilities
Project maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable
behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in
response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.
Project maintainers 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.
This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces
when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of
representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail
address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an
appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a
project may be further defined and clarified by project maintainers.
This Code of Conduct also applies outside the project spaces when the Project
Steward has a reasonable belief that an individual's behavior may have a
negative impact on the project or its community.
Conflict Resolution
We do not believe that all conflict is bad; healthy debate and disagreement
often yield positive results. However, it is never okay to be disrespectful or
to engage in behavior that violates the projects code of conduct.
If you see someone violating the code of conduct, you are encouraged to address
the behavior directly with those involved. Many issues can be resolved quickly
and easily, and this gives people more control over the outcome of their
dispute. If you are unable to resolve the matter for any reason, or if the
behavior is threatening or harassing, report it. We are dedicated to providing
an environment where participants feel welcome and safe.
Reports should be directed to Pigweed Community Managers at, the Project Steward(s) for Pigweed. It
is the Project Stewards duty to receive and address reported violations of the
code of conduct. They will then work with a committee consisting of
representatives from the Open Source Programs Office and the Google Open Source
Strategy team. If for any reason you are uncomfortable reaching out the Project
Steward, please email
**We will investigate every complaint**, but you may not receive a direct
response. We will use our discretion in determining when and how to follow up
on reported incidents, which may range from not taking action to permanent
expulsion from the project and project-sponsored spaces. We will notify the
accused of the report and provide them an opportunity to discuss it before any
action is taken. The identity of the reporter will be omitted from the details
of the report supplied to the accused. In potentially harmful situations, such
as ongoing harassment or threats to anyone's safety, we may take action without
