We have adopted a Contributor Code of Conduct!

News | Chelsea Troy | February 10, 2016 | ...

We have an exciting announcement to make!

The Spring projects are about developing fast, flexible Java apps.

But there's a driving force behind the technology—its people. We open-source our projects to welcome our community into making Spring the best it can be.

Now we are taking another step in that direction. Each of the active Spring projects has adopted a Contributor Code of Conduct! You can look at the contributor code of conduct right here, and you'll find a copy in each of our repositories on Github.

We want people from minority groups in tech to feel welcome to contribute to Spring. Contributor codes of conduct improve the experience of open source participation for people in those groups.

That is why we have committed to making participation in the Spring projects a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of level of experience, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, or nationality.

We also have a place for contributors to direct their concerns if they feel that the code of conduct has been breached. If you notice or experience discrimination or hurtful comments while participating in any Spring project, you can reach out to us at [email protected].
