<title>Code Of Conduct</title>

<fancy_format>

<h1>Overview</h1>

<p>The code of conduct for developers of the SQLite 
project is the 72 "instruments of good works" from the 6th century
[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_Saint_Benedict|Rule of St. Benedict],
shown below.
This code of conduct has proven its mettle in use by many thousands of
communities for 1,500 years, and has served as a baseline for many civil
law codes since the time of Charlemagne.

<p>
The SQLite developers are not monks.
None are able to adhere perfectly to this code of conduct.
All will fall short.  The goal of this code of conduct is
not to describe the minimum acceptable behavior below which
none transgress,
but rather to describe the highest standard of behavior
to which all aspire.
We grant grace to one another and request forgiveness and
promise to amend our ways when we stumble.

<p>
This code of conduct applies to the SQLite developers only.
Everyone is free to use the SQLite source code, object code,
and/or documentation without having to agree
with the behavioral standards outlined below.
You are encouraged to follow these standards as
in doing so you will live a happier, healthier, and more
productive life.
Nevertheless, this is a choice that you must make for yourself,
and is not a precondition for using SQLite.

<h1>The Code</h1>





<ol>
<li> First of all, love the Lord God with your whole heart,
     your whole soul, and your whole strength.
<li> Then, love your neighbor as yourself.
<li> Do not murder.
<li> Do not commit adultery.
<li> Do not steal.
<li> Do not covet.
<li> Do not bear false witness.
<li> Honor all (1 Peter 2:17).
<li> Do not do to another what you would not have done to yourself.
<li> Deny oneself in order to follow Christ.
<li> Chastise the body.
<li> Do not become attached to pleasures.
<li> Love fasting.
<li> Relieve the poor.
<li> Clothe the naked.

<title>Code Of Conduct</title>

<fancy_format>

<h1>Overview</h1>

<p>Having been encouraged by clients to adopt a written
code of conduct, the SQLite developers elected to govern their
interactions with each other, with their clients,
and with the larger SQLite user community in
accordance with the "instruments of good works" from chapter 4 of
[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_Saint_Benedict|The Rule of St. Benedict].
This code of conduct has proven its mettle in thousands of
communities for over 1,500 years, and has served as a baseline for many
civil law codes since the time of Charlemagne.

<p>
This rule is strict, and none are able to comply perfectly.
Grace is readily granted for minor transgressions.
All are encouraged to follow this rule closely, as in so
doing they may expect to live a happier, healthier, and more
productive lives.  The entire rule is good and wholesome, and
yet we make no enforcement of the more introspective aspects.

<p>
Everyone is free to use the SQLite source code, object code,
and/or documentation regardless of their opinion of and adherence
to this rule.
SQLite has been and continues to be completely free to everyone,
without precondition.

<p>
However, those who wish to participate in the SQLite community,
either by commenting on the public mailing lists or by contributing
patches or suggestions or in any other way,
are expected to present themselves in a manner
that honors the overarching spirit of the rule, even though they
might personally disagree with specific details.
Polite and professional discussion is always welcomed, from anyone.

<h1>The Rule</h1>

<ol>
<li> First of all, love the Lord God with your whole heart,
     your whole soul, and your whole strength.
<li> Then, love your neighbor as yourself.
<li> Do not murder.
<li> Do not commit adultery.
<li> Do not steal.
<li> Do not covet.
<li> Do not bear false witness.
<li> Honor all.
<li> Do not do to another what you would not have done to yourself.
<li> Deny oneself in order to follow Christ.
<li> Chastise the body.
<li> Do not become attached to pleasures.
<li> Love fasting.
<li> Relieve the poor.
<li> Clothe the naked.
