 We expect anyone who wants to work with us to be comfortable having their code reviewed and commented on by others in our project community. ​ We do endeavor to maintain an environment of open discourse, with a reasonable level of civility and mutual respect. ​ Reading our mailing list archives may be useful for getting a sense of how we work together. We expect anyone who wants to work with us to be comfortable having their code reviewed and commented on by others in our project community. ​ We do endeavor to maintain an environment of open discourse, with a reasonable level of civility and mutual respect. ​ Reading our mailing list archives may be useful for getting a sense of how we work together.
