OpenLMIS Code of Conduct

To the Community -

To date, OpenLMIS has not officially adopted a Code of Conduct outlining appropriate and respectful behavior within the Community. Having an official, publicly-posted Code of Conduct is necessary for applying to programs like the Google Summer of Code, Rails Girls Summer of Code, and others. It is also an important step for the overall growth and professionalism of the OpenLMIS Community.

In June, the OpenLMIS Technical Committee discussed the adoption of the Contributor Covenant version 1.4 – a code of conduct adopted by many open source projects ( The Contributor Covenant is widely regarded as a comprehensive and inclusive code of conduct, and should meet the needs of the OpenLMIS Community.

I would like to propose that OpenLMIS officially adopts the Contributor Covenant for the OpenLMIS Community as its official Code of Conduct. If there are any comments or objections, or an alternate code of conduct to propose, please do so by the end of the week (Friday, September 29).

If there are no major objections, OpenLMIS will officially adopt the Contributor Covenant as its Code of Conduct by the above date and will post it on the OpenLMIS wiki,, GitHub, and ReadtheDocs resources.


Warm regards,
