The code of conduct

Table of Content

With the prospect of a new church and one with a conspicuous online element, a clear upfront set of participant (much less member) expectations will have to come together almost immediately. But why draft one from scratch when -- and this is a benefit of the free culture and liberal licensing, another intended value -- when others have paved the way.

I'm thinking of the Code of Conduct of the Ubuntu operating system community. Not a perfect match, and it says nothing about contribution expectations. (Perhaps it shouldn't. Haven't got my head around that.) But it gets much of the way there and -- thank God -- lacks much of the ponderous, overwrought language that deeply theological people cannot escape.

I'll keep my eye out for others.
