<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 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.

     Christ immediately.

<li> Obey in all things the commands of those whom God has placed
     in authority over you even though they (which God forbid) should 
     act otherwise, mindful of the Lord's precept, "Do what they say, 
     but not what they do."
<li> Do not wish to be called holy before one is holy; but first to be
     holy, that you may be truly so called.

<title>Code Of Conduct</title>
<tcl>hd_keywords {Code of Conduct}</tcl>

<fancy_format>

<h1>Overview</h1>













<p>






The original document we put here was more of a 
[Code of Ethics of the Project Founder]. 
While we stand by those principles, they are not in line with the modern
technical meaning of a Code of Conduct and have hence been renamed.


<h1>Code of Conduct</h1>
















<p>











































































































The SQLite community has been a kind, welcoming and well-mannered community
since its inception nearly two decades ago. In that time many of the
qualities we've worked hard to bring to our project - safety, consistency,
usability and integrity among them - have become part of our community's
culture as well. Much like the care and effort we've put into securing the
longevity of SQLite, we'd like to do the same for that community by 
clarifying our goals and expectations for all involved. To that end
the SQLite project has officially adopted the 
[https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/about/governance/policies/participation/|Mozilla Community Participation Guidelines]
as its Code of Conduct with the exception that the reporting
email address is changed to
<a href="mailto:codeofconduct@sqlite.org">codeofconduct@sqlite.org</a>.
While we are not doing so in reaction to any current or ongoing issues,
we believe that this will be a helpful part of maintaining the long-term
sustainability of the project.

<title>Code Of Ethics</title>
<tcl>hd_keywords {Code of Ethics} {Code of Ethics of the Project Founder}</tcl>

<fancy_format>

<h1>Overview</h1>

<p>This document was originally called a "Code of Conduct" and
was created (in a slightly different format) for the purpose of
filling in a box on "supplier registration" forms
submitted to the SQLite developers by various minor clients.  However,
we subsequently learned that "Code of Conduct" has a specific technical
meaning within many software development communities, a meaning which
was at odds with the intent of this document.  Hence, this document
is now renamed and replaced by a 
[Code of Conduct|Code of Conduct] that does comply with the
specific techical requirements was inserted in the place of
the old name.

<p>
This document is still sometimes used as a "Code of Conduct" on supplier
registration forms.  But it is not a Code of Conduct in the same sense
that many communities mean a Code of Conduct.  Rather,
this document describes the foundational ethical principals upon
which SQLite is based.  Another way to look at this document is
as a succinct description of the SQLite Founder's idea of what it
means to be "virtuous".

<p>
Readers can also interpret this document as a primer on the
world-view of the SQLite Founder, to help them better understand
"where he is coming from".

<h2>Instruments of Good Works</h2>

<p>The founder of SQLite, and all of the current developers at the time
when this document was composed, have pledged 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]
(hereafter: "The Rule").
This code of ethics 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>Scope of Application</h2>

<p>
No one is required to follow The Rule, to know The Rule, or even
to think that The Rule is a good idea.  The Founder of SQLite believes
that anyone who follows The Rule will live a happier and more productive 
life, but individuals are free to dispute or ignore that advice if
they wish.

<p>
The founder of SQLite and all
current developers have pledged to follow spirit of The Rule
to the best of their ability. They
view The Rule as their promise to all SQLite users of how the developers
are expected to behave in community.
This is a one-way promise, or covenant.
In other words, the developers are saying: "We will treat you this
way regardless of how you treat us."


<h1>The Rule</h1>

<ol>
<li> First of all, love the Lord God with your whole heart,
     your whole soul, and your whole strength.
