During the translation process, various issues with the source document of our Code of Conduct were raised:
Homogeneity is an antipattern.
This wording is quite confusing if you’re not familiar with design or software development.
We have the obligation to use our positions of privilege, however tenuous, to improve the lives of others.
This part, especially the “however tenuous” thing (which is not emphasized in the source document), may be putting a lot of pressure on community members that have very little privilege and cannot afford to lose those right now. It was suggested to remove the “however tenuous” part.
Code of Conduct
Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:
- The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances, including when simulated online.
Banning all sex talk could favor tone policing or invisibilsation of queer people. Maybe we can add something to nuance that, like
The use of sexualized language or imagery, unless directly related to the discussion?
This includes the Funkwhale Matrix rooms, forums, issue tracker, blog and fediverse accounts and any other services provided to members of Funkwhale
It was suggested to replace
fediverse accounts by
social media accounts to make the thing more generic and explicit.
