Community-led development "The Apache Way"
This was extracted (@ 2021-06-16 22:10) from a list of minutes
which have been approved by the Board.
Please Note The Board typically approves the minutes of the previous meeting at the beginning of every Board meeting; therefore, the list below does not normally contain details from the minutes of the most recent Board meeting.
Meeting times vary, the exact schedule is available to ASF Members and Officers, search for "calendar" in the Foundation's private index page (svn:foundation/private-index.html).
Specifically, https://www.apache.org/foundation/policies/conduct begins with: This code of conduct applies to all spaces managed by the Apache Software Foundation, including IRC, all public and private mailing lists, issue trackers, wikis, blogs, Twitter, and any other communication channel used by our communities. and We expect this code of conduct to be honored by everyone who participates in the Apache community formally or informally, or claims any affiliation with the Foundation, in any Foundation-related activities and especially when representing the ASF, in any role. Roy believes that both of those sentences are overly long and ambiguous, and should be clarified so that the CoC volunteers do not find themselves trying to judge the behavior of all 8000 contributors when they aren't directly engaged in ASF-related communication. To be clear, there is no such scope limit for the Board; we can choose to remove committee members for any reason (or even without a reason). This scope is only for our expectations regarding the CoC process and its applicability to reported violations. Proposal from Roy, edit the above to something like: This code of conduct applies to all forum spaces managed by the Apache Software Foundation, to all officers, contractors, and employees of the ASF, and to any communication, participation, or activities conducted on our behalf, regardless of forum, that have an expressed or implied affiliation with the ASF or an Apache project. The board discussed various ways in which we could slightly modify the CoC process to clarify its scope, and also whether the CoC process itself is governed by the board or merely affirmed by the board. Rich Bowen has volunteered to research how the existing text might be improved. There was no immediate action taken by the board. @Roy: review past board resolution about code of conduct
