How We Updated Drupal's Code of Conduct
03-14, 12:35–13:05 (Europe/Berlin), Online Stage

In 2022, the Drupal Community Health Team began the process of updating the project's 12-year old code of conduct. This session will provide an overview of the approach the team took to this task, including:

  • Incorporating feedback from past community discussions and surveys
  • Reviewing codes of conduct from other communities for inspiration
  • Prioritizing what elements were important to have in an updated code of conduct
  • Ensuring that the updated code of conduct was written in a way that was clear and understandable
  • Soliciting input from community stakeholders prior to sharing with the community-at-large

We'll discuss what changes were made, and how the new code of conduct was designed to meet the unique needs of the Drupal project and community.
