Code of Conduct response policy

Once a ticket notifying us of a code of conduct issue has been filed, the Council will respond with an initial contact message within one week. That will come with a request for response, and further action will come within a week of the Council’s initial response.

(Fedora Council IRC meeting, 2018-05-23)

Teams within Fedora have the freedom to decide what is on- and off-topic for their fora (IRC channel, mailing list, Telegram channel, et cetera). Moderators may ban participants for repeatedly engaging in off-topic discussion in contributor channels, however they must file a ticket with the Council_'s Code of Conduct issue tracker to report the ban. Bans for being off-topic in one channel may not be extended to other channels unless the behavior is displayed in that channel as well. In this case, each ban should be treated as a separate issue with its own ticket. Community members who wish to appeal the ban may file a ticket with the Council.

Policy Change policy

Proposed changes to Fedora Council policies must be publicly announced on the council-discuss mailing list and in a Fedora Community Blog post in order to get feedback from the community. After a minimum of two calendar weeks, the Council may vote on the proposed change using the full consensus voting model. After approval, the change is reflected on the Council policies page.
