Fundamentally, we are committed to providing a productive, harassment-free environment for everyone. Rather than considering this code an exhaustive list of things that you can’t do, take it in the spirit it is intended - a guide to make it easier to enrich all of us and the communities in which we participate.
Importantly: as a member of our community, you are also a steward of these values. Not all problems need to be resolved via formal processes, and often a quick, friendly but clear word on an online forum or in person can help resolve a misunderstanding and de-escalate things.
However, sometimes these informal processes may be inadequate: they fail to work, there is urgency or risk to someone, nobody is intervening publicly and you don't feel comfortable speaking in public, etc. For these or other reasons, structured follow-up may be necessary and here we provide the means for that: we welcome reports by emailing Conduct-email or in anonymous by filling out this form.
This code applies equally to founders, developers, mentors and new community members, in all spaces managed by MDAnalysis. This includes the mailing lists, our GitHub organizations, our chat rooms, in-person events, and any other forums created by the project team. In addition, violations of this code outside these spaces may affect a person's ability to participate within them.
We are committed to ensuring a positive experience in our online community while consistently and fairly resolving any complaints. Note that your name and contact information are not required in order to submit this form and we will investigate all claims made here. Should you want us to follow up with you directly please state that and include a way for us to contact you.
