Code of conduct

The rules governing the posting of information to Focus Areas are straightforward:

1. Collaborate respectfully.

Those who post content to wiki pages should be aware that their entries may be modified, criticized, and edited by others. Changes should be viewed in the spirit of improvement and open debate. Editors are asked to be friendly, civil, and supportive. Personal attacks are not tolerated.

2. Stay on topic.

All content posted to an online community should directly relate to the topic matter. Information of a general nature detracts from the focus of the site and is not appropriate.

3. Don’t advertise. is designed to disseminate information in a non-commercial format. While we encourage posting links to company press releases on products that support open standards and case studies that describe the use of standard-compliant products, all such content should be objective in tone and factual in nature. Advertising copy and hyperbole should be avoided. Entries that are overtly commercial in nature will be removed from the site.
