Community Standards

The Idris community is committed to maintaining a welcoming, civil and constructive environment. We expect the following standards to be observed and upheld by all participants in any community forum (mailing lists, GitHub, IRC, reddit, etc.).

Be respectful and inclusive. Please do not use overtly sexual language or imagery, and do not attack anyone based on any aspect of personal identity, including gender, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, race, age or ability. Keep in mind that what you write in public forums is read by many people who don’t know you personally, so please refrain from making prejudiced or sexual jokes and comments – even ones that you might consider acceptable in private. Ask yourself if a comment or statement might make someone feel unwelcomed or like an outsider.

Give credit. All participants in the Idris community are expected to respect copyright laws and ethical attribution standards. This applies to both code and written materials, such as documentation or blog posts. Materials that violate the law, are plagiaristic, or ethically dubious in some way will be removed from officially-maintained lists of resources.

If you believe one of these standards has been violated, please either file an issue on an appropriate repository, or contact an Idris core developer (at your discretion). Keep in mind that most mistakes are due to ignorance rather than malice.

Be concise. Constructive criticism and suggestions are welcome, but high-traffic forums do not generally have the bandwidth for extensive discourse. Consider writing a blog post if you feel that you have enough to say on a particular subject.

Get involved. The Idris community is built on a foundation of reciprocity and collaboration. Be aware that community members contribute on a voluntary basis, so ideas and bug reports are ok, but demands are not. Pull requests are always welcomed – see the guidelines for contributing to read about how to get started.
