In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Our responsibilities

Project maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.

Appropriate use of FSMG resources

FSMG mirror servers and associated infrastructure are to be used only for providing mirrors of free software projects agreed upon by the FSMG project maintainers, and statistics and information about the FSMG project.

They are not to be used as a platform for conducting tests or experiments, as a place for project members to store personal files, or to serve any other files or content outside of what is required to maintain the FSMG website and mirrors.

It is expected that any changes to configuration of FSMG resources will be undertaken in consultation with the project maintainers, and will be carried out in accordance with security and stability best practices.


This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by project maintainers.

In particular all maintainers with access to FSMG mirror servers or accounts with third party providers must strictly adhere to the principles outlined in this document while using those resources.


Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the project team at All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.

Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the project's leadership.
