Code of Conduct response policy
Once a ticket notifying us of a code of conduct issue has been filed, the Council will respond with an initial contact message within one week. That will come with a request for response, and further action will come within a week of the Council’s initial response.
(Fedora Council IRC meeting, 2018-05-23)
Teams within Fedora have the freedom to decide what is on- and off-topic for their fora (IRC channel, mailing list, Telegram channel, et cetera). Moderators may ban participants for repeatedly engaging in off-topic discussion in contributor channels, however they must file a ticket with the Council’s Code of Conduct issue tracker to report the ban. Bans for being off-topic in one channel may not be extended to other channels unless the behavior is displayed in that channel as well. In this case, each ban should be treated as a separate issue with its own ticket. Community members who wish to appeal the ban may file a ticket with the Council.
The FCAIC is empowered to take action on Code of Conduct reports with an additional +1 from another core Council member or the Diversity & Inclusion Advisor and report back to Council.
