Open Source FPGA Foundation Code of Conduct Policy

Open Source FPGA Foundation Code of Conduct Policy

Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as members, contributors, committers, project leaders, and affiliates of the Open Source FPGA Foundation (OSFPGA) pledge to make participation in our projects and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender
identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Our Standards & Guidelines

Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:

    • Using welcoming and inclusive language
    • Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
    • Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
    • Focusing on what is best for the community

Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

    • The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or advances
    • Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
    • Public or private harassment
    • Publishing others’ private information, such as a physical or electronic address, without explicit permission
    • Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting


This Code of Conduct applies within all project and community spaces, and it also applies when an individual is representing the OSFPGA Foundation, its projects or its community in public spaces. Examples of representing a project or community include posting via social media account, or acting as a project representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by project committers, leaders, or the executive
management of OSFPGA Foundation.


Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the Staff. All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The Staff is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.

Members, affiliates, project committers or leaders who do not follow the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by the Staff.
