Code of Conduct

The code of conduct calls out the immediate rules of engagement, and general operation expectations while contributing to the project.

"Don't be a Dick" Policy

The Aurae project and its surrounding community have found safety and value in a primary guiding principle, that is often hard to interpret.

  • Don't be a dick.

This is a guiding principal for the project. We expect everyone to be treated with dignity and respect.

We believe that everyone knows when they are "being a dick", and we do not tolerate this level of aggression towards our community. In short we believe that you know if you are being a dick, and therefore you should be able to stop. If you do not stop, you will no longer be welcome in the project spaces.

Don't be a dick. You know if you are.
