  • Changes to the text, including addition of greater detail about acceptable and unacceptable behaviors in online settings.
  • Added a new language, through doing the first translation of the text to Spanish.
  • Changes to the committee. We thank Megan Carter for serving as independent community member until June 2022 and welcome back Kara Woo to serve in this role. Yanina Bellini Saibene joins the committee as the new rOpenSci Community Manager.
  • Review of our processes. We reviewed our onboarding and offboarding process for the code of conduct committee and generated templates for incident management.

These changes were released July 7, 2022 as version 2.4.
