Code of Conduct response policy

Once a ticket notifying us of a Code of Conduct issue has been filed, the Fedora 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 Fedora 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 Fedora 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 Fedora Council.

The FCA is empowered to take action on Code of Conduct reports with an additional +1 from another core Fedora Council member or the DEI Advisor and report back to Fedora Council.
