<title>Code Of Conduct</title>

<fancy_format>

<h1>Overview</h1>

<p>Having been encouraged by commercial clients to adopt a written
code of conduct, the SQLite developers have 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 easily granted for minor transgressions.
All are encouraged to follow this rule to the letter, as in so
doing they may expect to live a happier, healthier, and more
productive lives.  The whole 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 gist and spirit of the rule, even though they
might personally object to specific details.
Polite and professional discussion is always welcomed, from anyone.
And forgiveness is readily available should one falter.

<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.
