The Linux Kernel Adopts A Code of Conduct


Stay on topic please.


Im leaning to towards common sense will prevail. Way to many grey beards on the kernel mailing list.


Seems in response to this proposal for a CoC Devs are threatening to pull their code licences.


This CoC needs to be ejected ASAP.


As if the real goal of it wasn’t blatant enough, I assume this is the same left that calls everyone who disagrees with them a nazi?



Finally an opportunity for FreeBSD to show it’s quality, 2019 will be the year FreeBSD desktop!


Ehhhhh FBSD did the same thing a few years ago.

At least we have Haiku, AROS, and MINIX still…


FreeBSD is worse, did you mean OpenBSD?


I don’t know the difference.


ESR comments




Why isn’t there discussion on reddit about this?


Because we are the only ones who concern ourselves with such petty conversation.


r/Linux my friend


There’s a few threads they’re a couple days old, all are off the front page now

oh hey guess I’m famous now, bob smithy. Shoulda just used my screen name damn it…


Well there was a thead like this one on r/linux for like a day or two but it got deleted out of nowhere.



seriously tho… mods probably shut it down due to cancer.

+Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be
+reported by contacting the Technical Advisory Board (TAB) at
+<[email protected]>. All complaints will be reviewed and
+investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and
+appropriate to the circumstances. The TAB is obligated to maintain
+confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident.  Further details of
+specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.
+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.

It says right in the text, any action of enforcement will have a review process to ensure that it is appropriate and necessary. I can’t imagine what people are so upset about. Did anyone even read the document?


And when the review board becomes the same radical left ideology as the author of the Covenant? As that’s generally part 2 of the plan for take over.

Case in Point, attempting to smear someone on the the TAB as a rape apologist as linked earlier.

Then blocking me on twitter when i point out that they’re lying…

Why does this link always break…


That’s funny as calling people nazies would be breaking the CoC.
