LDPL Code of Conduct

Welcome, mighty one! You are about to learn the ways of the dinosaur tamers. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with them before trying to tame any dinosaurs yourself.


In this document we use the term Dinosaur Tamer to refer anyone who contributes to LDPL, including (but not limited to) contributors to the repository code, mantainers, bug reporters, people who code in LDPL, people who submit issues and anyone interested and/or involved with the language in any way. Sorry if this is too cringy for you, that's the way it is.

Our Pledge

In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as dinosaur tamers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, sex characteristics, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socio-economic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, dislikeness of COBOL-looking languages or sexual identity, and orientation.

Our Standards

Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment include:

Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:

Our Responsibilities

Project maintaining dinosaur tamers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

Project maintaining dinosaur tamers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.


This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the LDPL project or its community. Examples of representing the project or community include using an official LDPL e-mail address, posting via an official LDPL social media account, or acting as an appointed LDPL representative at an online or offline event. Representation of the LDPL project may be further defined and clarified by project maintaining dinosaur tamers.


Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the project team at martin (at) ldpl-lang.org. All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.

Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the dinosaur Tamers Code in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the project's leadership.
