Python Community Code of Conduct

The Python community is made up of members from around the globe with
a diverse set of skills, personalities, and experiences. It is through
these differences that our community experiences great successes and
continued growth. When you're working with members of the community,
we encourage you to follow these guidelines which help steer our
interactions and strive to keep Python a positive, successful, and
growing community.

A member of the Python community is:


Members of the community are open to collaboration, whether it's on
PEPs, patches, problems, or otherwise. We're receptive to constructive
comment and criticism, as the experiences and skill sets of other
members contribute to the whole of our efforts. We're accepting of all
who wish to take part in our activities, fostering an environment
where anyone can participate and everyone can make a difference.


Members of the community are considerate of their peers -- other
Python users. We're thoughtful when addressing the efforts of others,
keeping in mind that often times the labor was completed simply for
the good of the community. We're attentive in our communications,
whether in person or online, and we're tactful when approaching
differing views.


Members of the community are respectful. We're respectful of others,
their positions, their skills, their commitments, and their efforts.
We're respectful of the volunteer efforts that permeate the Python
community. We're respectful of the processes set forth in the
community, and we work within them. When we disagree, we are courteous
in raising our issues.

Overall, we're good to each other. We contribute to this community not
because we have to, but because we want to. If we remember that, these
guidelines will come naturally.
