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 diverse
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 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 conduct themselves in a manner
that honors the overarching spirit of the rule, even if they
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.

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 diverse
communities for over 1,500 years, and has served as a baseline for many
civil law codes since the time of Charlemagne.

<h2>Users of the SQLite Code</h2>







<p>
This rule applies to SQLite developers, not to users of the SQLite code.
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.

<h2>Participation in the SQLite Community</h2>

<p>Participants in the SQLite Mailing Lists or other public forums
are not required to follow this rule.  However, comments posted on
mailing lists or forums are expected to be courteous and professional,
and should be worded as if they were written by someone who is a follower
of this rule.  In other words, while participating in the SQLite
community, one should speak only the truth in love, honor all, be not
angry nor nurse a grudge, do not return evil for evil, be not
proud nor a grumbler nor a detractor, avoid depraved speech,
hate no one, do not love quarreling,
and so forth.  Violators brought to the attention of the project leader
will be reproved, gently at first but with increasing urgency, and may
ultimately be banned if the behavior is not amended.

<h2>Core Developers</h2>

<p>







Because SQLite is [public-domain|in the public domain], the project does
not normally accept patches from outside contributors as
such code would carry an implied copyright.  In order to
keep SQLite completely free and open, all
code is written and maintained by a small team of core developers.

<p>
All of the current core developers of SQLite have pledged to follow
this rule to the best of their ability, and to hold each other accountable
for the those parts of the rule that regulate interaction with the larger 
community. The public also is invited to call us out when we fall short.
While the complete rule is good, we make no enforcement of the introspective
aspects.

<p>
In the future, should someone wish to become a core developer of SQLite
and is in every way qualified except that he or she does not feel
comfortable with some details of this rule (for example, the overtly
religious elements), then appropriate adjustments can be made at that 
point.  The objective of the rule is not to impose a particular religious 
creed, but rather to use time-tested behavioral guidelines to promote a 
productive and peaceful community.

<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.

  The SQLITE_READONLY_DIRECTORY result code indicates that the database

  a journal file in the same directory as the database and the creation of
  a journal file is a prerequisite for writing.
}

RESCODE SQLITE_ERROR_SNAPSHOT {SQLITE_ERROR | (3<<8)} {
  The SQLITE_ERROR_SNAPSHOT result code might be returned when attempting
  to start a read transaction on an historical version of the database
  by using the [sqlite3_snapshot_open()] interface.  If the historical
  snapshot is no longer available, then the read transaction will fail
  with the SQLITE_ERROR_SNAPSHOT.  This error code is only possible if
  SQLite is compiled with [-DSQLITE_ENABLE_SNAPSHOT].
}

RESCODE SQLITE_LOCKED_VTAB {SQLITE_LOCKED | (2<<8)} {
  The SQLITE_LOCKED_VTAB result code is not used by the SQLite core, but
  it is available for use by extensions.  Virtual table implementations
  can return this result code to indicate that they cannot complete the
  current operation because of locks held by other threads or processes.
  <p>
  The [R-Tree extension] returns this result code when an attempt is made
  to update the R-Tree while another prepared statement is actively reading
  the R-Tree.  The update cannot proceed because any change to an R-Tree
  might involve reshuffling and rebalancing of nodes, which would disrupt
  read cursors, causing some rows to be repeated and other rows to be
  omitted.
}

RESCODE SQLITE_CORRUPT_SEQUENCE {SQLITE_CORRUPT | (2<<8)} {
  The SQLITE_CORRUPT_SEQUENCE result code means that the schema of
  the sqlite_sequence table is corrupt.  The sqlite_sequence table
  is used to help implement the [AUTOINCREMENT] feature.  The
  sqlite_sequence table should have the following format:
  <blockquote><pre>
  CREATE TABLE sqlite_sequence(name,seq);
  </pre></blockquote>
  <p>If SQLite discovers that the sqlite_sequence table has any other
  format, it returns the SQLITE_CORRUPT_SEQUENCE error.
}

  The SQLITE_CANTOPEN_DIRTYWAL result code is not used at this time.
