A most excellent Code of Conduct

Now, this is one CoC I'd like to see more open source projects adopting.
1. Overview
Having been encouraged by clients to adopt a written code of conduct, the SQLite developers elected to govern their interactions with each other, with their clients, and with the larger SQLite user community in accordance with the "instruments of good works" from chapter 4 of The Rule of St. Benedict. This code of conduct has proven its mettle in thousands of diverse communities for over 1,500 years, and has served as a baseline for many civil law codes since the time of Charlemagne.

This rule is strict, and none are able to comply perfectly. Grace is readily granted for minor transgressions. All are encouraged to follow this rule closely, as in so doing they may expect to live happier, healthier, and more productive lives. The entire rule is good and wholesome, and yet we make no enforcement of the more introspective aspects.

Everyone is free to use the SQLite source code, object code, and/or documentation regardless of their opinion of and adherence to this rule. SQLite has been and continues to be completely free to everyone, without precondition.

However, those who wish to participate in the SQLite community, either by commenting on the public mailing lists or by contributing patches or suggestions or in any other way, are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that honors the overarching spirit of the rule, even if they disagree with specific details. Polite and professional discussion is always welcomed, from anyone.

2. The Rule
First of all, love the Lord God with your whole heart, your whole soul, and your whole strength. Then, love your neighbor as yourself.
Read the whole thing there. If it was good enough for St. Benedict's little project, it's good enough for yours.

11. Chastise the body.

I doubt any SJWs made it past that one.

Blogger Sam Sutherland October 22, 2018 7:07 PM  

More likely they "Buffet the body".

Blogger Vaughan Williams October 22, 2018 7:14 PM  

Only took the SJWs 8 months to notice, but now they are screeching.

Blogger Silent Draco October 22, 2018 7:31 PM  

These CoC initiators will have only one response to violators or screechers. Review with benefit of clergy, but the reply is:

That is one conference I would go to and feel comftorable with.

What next, a Javascriptorium? Illuminating manuscripts one LED at a time.

Man, this made my day

COC stream mentioned Slashdot, which I haven't followed in years. Thought of the place as mostly liberal/converged.

Surprised to find that the top comments on the article are generally supportive.

There's hope for the programming community if they can identify SJWs as Other.

Blogger Ford Prefect October 22, 2018 8:06 PM  

Wow. Prior to seeing this, I had, on occasion, thought that their first point would make an excellent CoC. But, wow. Awesome. I will definitely consider using SQLite when at all suitable.

Blogger Damelon Brinn October 22, 2018 8:12 PM  

I assumed at first he was trolling them, which was great. But it appears he's completely serious, which is even better.

Blogger ReluctantMessiah October 22, 2018 8:12 PM  

11. Chastise the body.
12. Do not become attached to pleasures.
13. Love fasting.

Trigglypuffs everywhere reee

Blogger widlast washere October 22, 2018 8:18 PM  

St. Benedict was completely aware of the foibles of human nature, and wrote a rule that would take man's worst nature into consideration, and try to promote man's best nature. Granted, he was influenced by earlier works, but his rule has stood the test of time.
BTW, fasting is good for you, physically as well as spiritually.

Blogger Doktor Jeep October 22, 2018 8:23 PM  

That's it. Right here. We just found the cell-destroyer against the CoC cancer.

Blogger Silent Draco October 22, 2018 8:24 PM  

wildlast, so is confession of your sins or inability to lie up to the code, counsel and absolution, and help from your brethren to amend your ways. All highly novel concepts to the SJW and NPC. All easily understood by the man who walks humbly with God, and tries to follow His footsteps. "Domine, non dignis sum," but we can mend our imperfect ways as best we can with His help.

Blogger R Doom October 22, 2018 8:30 PM  

Wow, that is indeed a CoC I fully support. I hope many other institutions adopt this.

Blogger Vaughan Williams October 22, 2018 8:33 PM  

@tz if you have ideas for the domain let me know. been sitting idle for years, wanted it to be some site for easily comparing the differences between all the old manuscripts (greek, latin, etc) but resources are limited. good ideas welcome.

Blogger Random #57 October 22, 2018 8:50 PM  

@7 SirHamster:

COC stream mentioned Slashdot, which I haven't followed in years. Thought of the place as mostly liberal/converged.

Its moderation system is very resistant to SJW capture, except of course by insiders. That the people who curate the topics found it worthy, while forums like Hacker News and Reddit's /r/programming quickly banned it despite it generating a lot of good commentary reminds me why I've returned to Slashdot after so many years.

Blogger widlast washere October 22, 2018 9:23 PM  

@13 your Latin is a bit off..

Excellent darkstream - so IGG lost money by their pathetic untrustworthy actions but did they pay ya all back?

Blogger Stg58/Animal Mother October 22, 2018 10:10 PM  

Donald Trump just declared himself to be a nationalist at the rally in Houston. Is this how a dyed in the wool civnat boomer talks?

He dared say the "N" word. Best. President. Ever.

The Empire is dead. May the Republic survive.

Blogger Stg58/Animal Mother October 22, 2018 10:18 PM  

It's the new N Word!

Vox, don't tell Spacebunny.

I love you, man.

Blogger Damelon Brinn October 22, 2018 10:58 PM  

Trump has called himself a nationalist (and a globalist) before. The difference is, this time they believe he means it. That should keep Twitter occupied tomorrow.

Blogger tublecane October 22, 2018 11:06 PM  

@23- Well, "nat" is right there in "civnat." But seriously, it's not the n-word itself but the word and the man saying it. If Hillary or George Bush said the same thing, I'm not sure they'd care.

With Trump, the word actually has the chance to mean something.

Blogger S. Thermite October 22, 2018 11:29 PM  

Man, this made my day


Also the best thing I’ve seen on Slashdot in a long time, and I go there every workday.

Blogger Stg58/Animal Mother October 22, 2018 11:34 PM  

He didn't say "I am a civic nationalist", though. And what's more telling, he said it's old fashioned now. Is he describing himself as a Taft/America First nationalist?

Blogger tublecane October 22, 2018 11:43 PM  

@30- Americ First was one of his campaign slogans, as we all recall. Which drove them up a wall for the same reason nationalism does. Namely, Nazism.

Nazi being anyone who disagrees with them.

Blogger John Calla October 22, 2018 11:53 PM  

Trump isn't a civic nationalist. He just plays one on TV.

It sure is funny when the cultural marxists insist that they have a right to force their rules down people's throats, yet that Christians can't.

The WashPo reports that Soros - described as a target of the far right - has been sent a parcel bomb.

The Narrative is served.

Blogger Lurker October 23, 2018 3:27 AM  

OT -

Just one more example (among many) of the lefTARD/bankster connection..

"All the New York Bankers donated to Hillary – NOT Trump! No corruption was more prevalent than that of Goldman Sachs. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. had banned ALL partners from making donations to certain political campaigns, including the Donald Trump-Mike Pence presidential ticket. The audacity of Goldman Sachs to outright prohibit its staff from donating to Trump in the 2016 elections demonstrated how corrupt the entire election process has become. Any people wonder why the Democrats, who profess to hate the “rich” and special interests, and the NUMBER ONE party to whom the most corrupt people in the system donate. Not a single newspaper ever asks – Why?

I have not investigated if they are doing the same thing again for this season. It would not surprise me. Any firm which instructs their employees how to donate and restricts them from donating to their candidate of choice is violating every principle of the democratic process. God help us if they succeed."

@37 Sounds like a worthy cause. I was thinking more along the lines of Bible study tools written in JavaScript, especially for doing word studies. Alas, time is scarce. I'll see what the Wycliffe Society has to say.

the salt in twitter over this has been unbelievable, even by sjw standards - just learn to build your own replacement sjws, what's the problem?

@38- The ominous parallel folks are having visions of Walter Rathenau.

Ever notice you're not allowed to notice them until they're (allegedly) under threat for being what they are?

Blogger CarpeOro October 23, 2018 7:10 AM  

Saw this in thread yesterday. This is a code of conduct in which I'd be in full support. Wife and I have fasted in the past on occasion, good idea to start up again.

The best kind of trolling is when you're actually serious. This is at least Saint-level trolling.

I just went to the link and discovered they've replaced it with the Mozilla CoC. Oh well.

Oh sweet, sqlite coc rules! i'm gonna copy them...

They changed the CoC.
