→ node [[contract]]

An Agora is defined by its code of conduct; it is a contract that binds us within its confines. It is therefore of utmost importance for it to be well specified (explicit) and understandable by all.

A [[contract]] is just a list of [[assertions]]: a declaration of [[intents]]. Please feel free to contribute corrections by submitting patches to this file in the [[agora repository]] -- or by offering guidance or feedback.

  • Be [[honest]]; be [[true]] to yourself.
  • Try to be [[constructive]], [[kind]], [[rational]], and [[compassionate]].
    • When interacting with others, either directly or indirectly, please keep in mind and follow the [[principle of charity]].
    • When you disagree with someone, please prioritize mutual understanding over winning an argument.
  • If you made a mistake, apologize.
    • If someone made a mistake but then apologized thoroughly and made [[amendments]] or [[reparations]], try to love them for that. Be mindful of the importance of [[forgiveness]].
  • The members of an [[agora]] can propose changes to its [[contract]] by reaching out to its [[maintainers]] or directly sending a [[pr]].
  • An [[agora]] can be forked at will and with no ill intent.
  • Every member of an [[agora]] is of course free to follow their personal extension of any well defined set of values. If you have a personal [[public contract]], please submit it to the [[agora]] at your earliest convenience.

(See [[agora client]] or reach out to [[flancian]], [[vera]], [[bmann]], or any other of the member of the [[fedstoa]] if you'd like to get involved.)

Contract

The formalization of a mutually beneficial relationship among or between two or more parties.

Issues to look out for:

  • Was there mutual assent?
  • Was there a mutual exchange of [[consideration]]? A completely one sided agreement is generally unenforceable, but there are exceptions (e.g., [[promissory estoppel]], or a [[promissory note]]).
  • Was there an [[integration clause]] contained within a written agreement? If not, other evidence outside of the written agreement may be introduced if a dispute arises.
