Contributing Guidelines

Thank you for reading this page. This page is suprisingly long but we will keep a “too long; didn’t read” section for those who are rushing.

Code of Conducts

We build community with respect to one another. Hence, please refrain from discriminations and respect one another.

As contributors and maintainers of this project, we pledge to respect all
people who contribute through reporting issues, posting feature requests,
updating documentation, submitting pull requests or patches, and other

We are committed to making participation in this project a harassment-free
experience for everyone, regardless of level of experience, gender, gender
identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance,
body size, race, ethnicity, age, or religion.

Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include the use of sexual
language or imagery, derogatory comments or personal attacks, trolling, public
or private harassment, insults, or other unprofessional conduct.

Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or
reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions
that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct. Project maintainers who do not
follow the Code of Conduct may be removed from the project team.

This code of conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces

Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be
reported by opening an issue or contacting one or more of the project

This Code of Conduct is adapted from the Contributor Covenant, version 1.1.0,

Raising Issues

If you have any questions, feel free to file an issue and label with as Discussion. In case you know who is the maintainer or developer, you can tag him into the issue as well.

Fennec facilitates and allows asking questions in the issue sections. Afterall, that is what the issue section is about. Normally we’ll review the values of efforts, sharing and understanding the idea and by making the discussion open, you can attract like-minded individuals to contribute together as well!
