Community Rules

(This will be sent to every newcomer who joined the slack workspace, as well as posted on the project website.)

  • Be respectful - This is the most important rule!

  • All important decisions and conclusions must be reflected back to the mailing lists. "If it didn’t happen on a mailing list, it didn’t happen." - The Apache Mottos

  • Use Slack threads to keep parallel conversations from overwhelming a channel.

  • Please do not direct message people for troubleshooting, Jira assigning and PR review. These should be picked-up voluntarily.
