45 Github Issues Dos and Don’ts [↗]

Some great tips on how to behave on GitHub. I particularly like the “Being a Decent Human Being” tips, including:

Do be charitable with your interpretation of others’ words. For example, reasonable interpretations of “What do you not understand?” include a condescending insult or hurried clarification attempt. But the most charitable interpretation is that it is an open ended invitation to be a data point used to improve the documentation. With global diversity of personalities and cultures participating in open source and the low emotional density of written text, always default to the most charitable interpretation of others’ words.
