Revision of Trisquel Community Guidelines from Sat, 11/01/2014 - 04:21

The revisions let you track differences between multiple versions of a post.


Trisquel is a free GNU/Linux distribution. Users may audit/study, run, distribute, and modify Trisquel. And distribute modified copies. When we say that trisquel is "free", we mean that it supports these freedoms.

These freedoms are pre-requisites for liberty, privacy, and market-freedom.

Our community supports the Free Software Movement.

Commitment to our community

  1. All of our contributions respect software freedom.
  2. Non-free software may slip into our system, despite our efforts. We will be vigilant, and will remove non-free software when we find it.
  3. Free manuals are an essential part of free software packages. We will only include documentation released under an appropriate free license. The manuals we distribute will not recommend or suggest non-free software.

Respect among communitiy members

Social norms:

  1. Discrimination -- Do not discriminate against people based on age, gender, sex, sexual orientation, disability, religion, ideology, ideas, social class, nationality, race, intelligence, or any analogous grounds.
  2. Profanity -- Do not curse or use hard language here. Social norms differ from place to place; hard language can deter people from our community.
  3. Incivility -- Do not insult others here. Disagree and challenge ideas instead.

Community resources:

  1. Our community's resources --the forum, documentation, etc-- are for free software only. Please do not distribute, recommend, or support non-free software here.
  2. Avoid certain misnomers and propaganda terms.
  3. Please report flaming, flame-baiting, and trolling.

Notes:gNewSense's Community Guidelines inspired ours. They license their Guidelines with the GFDL with no invariant sections.
