    • 1. Announcing theRedwood Open project
    • 2. Toward solving the code of conduct problem.
    • 3. Anti-social behavior is detrimental to communities.
    • 4. It drives existing members away.
    • 5. It scares newmembers away.
    • 6. (Projects require a constant flow ofnewcomers to live,thrive and survive.)
    • 7. It gives your project a bad reputation.
    • 8. “Yeah, that’s just how those guys are.”
    • 9. For project leaders, dealing with the behavior sucks.
    • 10. It takes time away from real work.
    • 11. Who wants to write acode of conduct for a conference?
    • 12. Who wants to writepolicies for a mailing list or IRC channel?
    • 13. Who has time to?
    • 14. But these aresolved problems.
    • 15. Ex: OSBridge havepublished their code of conduct for use.
    • 16. Even then,tracking down suitable documents is time-consuming.
    • 17. What to do?
    • 18. I’m starting a project called Redwood.
    • 19. Redwood wants to help leaders create strong, lasting projects.
    • 20. (You know?Redwood trees? Strong?Last a long time?)
    • 21. Redwood’s firstdeliverable will be a code of conduct.
    • 22. It will be a named entity that projectsadopt like a license.
    • 23. Mailing lists could say “We adhere toRedwood Mailing List Policies v1.0”
    • 24. Project websites could have a badge saying “We are a Redwood Project”.
    • 25. The Redwood badge would let newcomersknow the project takes community seriously.
    • 26. A kind of “GoodHousekeeping Seal OfKeeping Things Civil.”
    • 27. Note that this is notjust for Perl projects.
    • 28. (Last week, Rasmus had to tell the PHP dev list not to call each other assholes.)
    • 29. We can help all open source projects.
    • 30. Redwood has other goals as well.
    • 31. We will be a repositoryof information to help projects with other Solved Problems.
    • 32. But the policies/codething is Numero Uno.
    • 33. I’m looking for help on the project.
    • 34. I’ve been roundingpeople up all week.
    • 35. I know the objections to this idea.
    • 36. “But you can’tchange people!”
    • 37. No kidding.
    • 38. I want to make it easier for leaders to manage their projects.
    • 39. “Dude, people willalways be like that. Live with it.”
    • 40. I get that. But I think we canstill improve things.
    • 41. Some of you think I’m just whining.
    • 42. That’s OK, too.
    • 43. But for the rest of you,
    • 44. who want to help improve the opensource community
    • 45. and make it easier forprojects to do the same
    • 46. please come talk to me.
    • 47. Andy Lesterandy@petdance.com(I’m pretty findable)
    • 48. Let’s improve our little slice of the world. Thank you.
