and with the larger SQLite user community in
accordance with the "instruments of good works" from chapter 4 of
[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_Saint_Benedict|The Rule of St. Benedict].
This code of conduct has proven its mettle in thousands of diverse
communities for over 1,500 years, and has served as a baseline for many
civil law codes since the time of Charlemagne.

<p>
This rule is strict, and none are able to comply perfectly.
Grace is readily granted for minor transgressions.
All are encouraged to follow this rule closely, as in so
doing they may expect to live happier, healthier, and more
productive lives.  The entire rule is good and wholesome, and
yet we make no enforcement of the more introspective aspects.

<p>

Everyone is free to use the SQLite source code, object code,
and/or documentation regardless of their opinion of and adherence
to this rule.
SQLite has been and continues to be completely free to everyone,
without precondition.

















<p>
However, those who wish to participate in the SQLite community,
either by commenting on the public mailing lists or by contributing
patches or suggestions or in any other way,
are expected to conduct themselves in a manner
that honors the overarching spirit of the rule, even if they
disagree with specific details.
Polite and professional discussion is always welcomed, from anyone.












<h1>The Rule</h1>

<ol>
<li> First of all, love the Lord God with your whole heart,
     your whole soul, and your whole strength.
<li> Then, love your neighbor as yourself.

and with the larger SQLite user community in
accordance with the "instruments of good works" from chapter 4 of
[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_Saint_Benedict|The Rule of St. Benedict].
This code of conduct has proven its mettle in thousands of diverse
communities for over 1,500 years, and has served as a baseline for many
civil law codes since the time of Charlemagne.

<h2>Users of the SQLite Code</h2>







<p>
This rule applies to SQLite developers, not to users of the SQLite code.
Everyone is free to use the SQLite source code, object code,
and/or documentation regardless of their opinion of and adherence
to this rule.
SQLite has been and continues to be completely free to everyone,
without precondition.

<h2>Participation in the SQLite Mailing Lists</h2>

<p>Participates in the SQLite Mailing Lists or other public forums
are not required to follow this rule.  However, comments posted on
mailing lists or forums are expected to be courteous and professional,
and should be worded as if they were written by someone who is a follower
of this rule.  Speak only the truth in love, honor all, do not be
angry or nurse a grudge, do not return evil for evil, be not
proud or a grumbler or a detractor, avoid depraved speech,
hate no one, do not love quarreling,
and so forth.  Violator brought to the attention of the project leader
will be reproved, gently at first but with increasing urgency, and may
ultimately be banned if the behavior is not amended.

<h2>Core Developers</h2>

<p>







All of the current core developers of SQLite have pledged to follow
this rule.
The public is invited to call us out if we are seen in breach of the rule,
especially with regards to our interaction with mailing list participates
and/or general users of SQLite.

<p>
In the future, should someone wish to become a core developer of SQLite
and is in every way qualified except that he or she does not feel
comfortable with some details of this rule, then appropriate adjustments 
will be made at that point.

<h1>The Rule</h1>

<ol>
<li> First of all, love the Lord God with your whole heart,
     your whole soul, and your whole strength.
<li> Then, love your neighbor as yourself.
