[] Community Code of Conduct


First of all, congratulations to everyone involved in shipping Mars. Another great Eclipse community simultaneous release!

I am very pleased to announce that the Eclipse Foundation Board of Directors approved a Community Code of Conduct[1] at their meeting earlier this week at EclipseCon France. This brings the Eclipse community in line with the best practices for open source communities around the world.

Our community already has a strong culture of respect and professionalism. Neither I nor the Board expect anyone's behaviour to change as a result of this. This is simply codifying the high expectations we already meet in terms of professionalism, respect, and simply courtesy.

Best regards,

Mike Milinkovich
Executive Director
