1	Code of Conflict
2	----------------
3	
4	The Linux kernel development effort is a very personal process compared
5	to "traditional" ways of developing software.  Your code and ideas
6	behind it will be carefully reviewed, often resulting in critique and
7	criticism.  The review will almost always require improvements to the
8	code before it can be included in the kernel.  Know that this happens
9	because everyone involved wants to see the best possible solution for
10	the overall success of Linux.  This development process has been proven
11	to create the most robust operating system kernel ever, and we do not
12	want to do anything to cause the quality of submission and eventual
13	result to ever decrease.
14	
15	If however, anyone feels personally abused, threatened, or otherwise
16	uncomfortable due to this process, that is not acceptable.  If so,
17	please contact the Linux Foundation's Technical Advisory Board at
18	<tab@lists.linux-foundation.org>, or the individual members, and they
19	will work to resolve the issue to the best of their ability.  For more
20	information on who is on the Technical Advisory Board and what their
21	role is, please see:
22		http://www.linuxfoundation.org/projects/linux/tab
23	
24	As a reviewer of code, please strive to keep things civil and focused on
25	the technical issues involved.  We are all humans, and frustrations can
26	be high on both sides of the process.  Try to keep in mind the immortal
27	words of Bill and Ted, "Be excellent to each other."
