Yasmary, First and foremost thanks for your reply I appreciated it greatly. I also value your feedback and your perspective.

There are two important things that need to upheld in order for that to happen:

First dialog should always be open, civil and honest.

Second whatever standards and values we decide as a community have to be applied to everyone.

My concerns so far have been with the version of the contributors covenant proposed. I’m happy to say there is a newer version of the php one and the contributors covenant that looks a lot better and that I would be happy adopt that one.

Like what you read? Give Allan MacGregor a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
