[torvalds/linux] Code of Conduct: Let's revamp it.
« on: September 17, 2018, 02:19:15 pm »
Been following this commit on Git: https://goo.gl/HEtDia

Quote
The Code of Conflict is not achieving its implicit goal of fostering
civility and the spirit of 'be excellent to each other'.  Explicit
guidelines have demonstrated success in other projects and other areas
of the kernel.

Here is a Code of Conduct statement for the wider kernel.  It is based
on the Contributor Covenant as described at www.contributor-covenant.org

From this point forward, we should abide by these rules in order to help
make the kernel community a welcoming environment to participate in.

Thought some of the other nerds, amongst us, might find it interesting. 


~ EDIT ~

Let's see if they practice the same tolerance what they preach ...  LoL  ;D

Has Linus Torvalds okayed this ?

Quote
31    * Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks

Bwahahahaha!! .. I bet he trips in 10 minutes, and nVidia are just waiting for the fall :))

He's always bitching about the quality of commits, in fact that's the only time you ever hear from him .. the only way this is gonna work is if for some reason he looses his voice.

Talk about arming the enemy ::)

To be continued.....

Yup. You've crystallized my thoughts exactly. He's got that 'Viking' blood in him.

It's only a matter of time until he strips naked, paints his body blue, and comes out swinging his broadaxe.

He can only contain his rage for so long, on any given topic. Then, he'll be forever branded as a hypocrite  ::)

This politically correct apologist bullshit to quieten the oh so easily outraged snowflakes does my friggin head in.

Take this forum for example, we won't have people being idiots towards each other, there's no need for a 'code of conduct'.

On second thoughts, here's our new 'rules of conduct'...

1) Don't be a prick.
1a) "prick" can be defined on the fly by forum staff.

2) Nobody will ever become forum staff who break rule 1.

3) Forum staff are exempt from rule 1 when subsequently dealing with anyone else who already broke rule 1


Kinda obvious innit.

Well yeah, but surely that's covered by rule 1

At least it would be if done publicly on this forum :o

Sounds good.

BTW, just a fair warning... I'm the only normal person here.  ;)

4) Forum staff MUST have a good sense of humour.

Hrm...

Linus Torvalds apologizes for years of being a jerk, takes time off to learn empathy

Guess 'they' saw the inevitable, too:

Quote
Linux creator Linus Torvalds has apologized for years of rants, swearing, and general hostility directed at other Linux developers, saying he's going to take a temporary break from his role as maintainer of the open source kernel to learn how to behave better.

CoC, SJWs, Politics....  :o

This is a kernel, a masterpiece of software.... should i consider it gone?
Would i be Linus, i would search me a new planet far far away from those SJWs (CoC-writer)  :'(

The world is very ill!

Edit: Adding two y2be-videos which are very explaining, they helped me to to find orientation





i must say a big thank you to the both creators.

i must state that i can not agree to this new Code of conduct! that being said, it results in the fact that i can not produce / create / keep nor install anything which is based on this new CoC!

i for myself will fire up some sort of exit strategy - i do not want to have anything to do with those SJWs, who have caused this disaster and are gone way too far now (and will burn in hell for that!), and it is also clear that someone on the software market (Google?! Microsoft?! Apple?) gets a lot of money these days, while Linux is in bad weather / stormy sea, each percent it looses on market, means big bags of money for the competitors / rivals, i do not want that my PC, OS and my personal and creative project became victims of those market competitions nor political interest, open source has to stay free from political and sexual agendas and business / market competition! Actual we have open sauce :P

i will leave peppermint ASAP, it's XFCE/LXDE not Cinnamon nor Mate, its my sign of respect, to let this nice distro be as it is, but it doesn't match my needs, and i have not the room and time to keep a distro on HDD which i do not use.

i will step back to older Linux-Distros around 16.04. (LTS) and kernels before 4.18 (without NSA adds) to setup some sort of clean and trustworthy buffer until March 2021

in the meantime i will work on outdated versions which can handle the software which i want/need to use and will search for OS alternatives with out politics, SJWs and transgenderism, maybe in 2021 then 16.04. reaches the EoL the World will look very different i.e. SJWs rule the world and each natural born gender is hunted because they are not synthetics / transmuted! (Attention Sarcasm! and sorry for the rough language i'm really pi...ed!) Bye!

Famous last words?

Linux Developers threaten to pull the "Kill switch"



as foreseen by Yvonne Hofstetter several years ago, "we should restart the whole internet"

just as an example (ger.)  (cant find the video with the real quote)



... if  (hopefully this will not happen) those devs trigger the "kill switch", immediatelly are we in the biggest crisis the world has ever faced
and those SJWs who have caused this are the most hated people on the planet, and if really everthing is connected, they will face the ultimate
response from the humanity.

Mirror your package-trees offline, and ... hm ... survive ;)

Developers can of course pull their time and effort from the kernel. They have always had that option.

They cannot, however, pull their code as it is OPEN source, the minute they submit that code to the Kernel they no longer "own" it.  As soon as they pull their work - someone can put it back.

Now this will be a pain but there is no "Kill" switch as I understand it.

I think you'll find the Linux kernel can and does contain proprietary modules that Linus and kernel.org don't own the rights to.
https://lwn.net/Articles/13398/

But seriously, nobody's gonna pull their code .. and certainly nothing that couldn't be 'clean-room' rewritten if it were a necessary part of the kernel (which it likely isn't anyway).

This is currently just a storm in a teacup, and people bitching about the politics/defending Linus when he doesn't actually need it.
