+# Contributor Covenant Code of Conduct
+
+## Our Pledge
+
+In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as
+contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and
+our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body
+size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience,
+nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and
+orientation.
+
+## Our Standards
+
+Examples of behavior that contributes to creating a positive environment
+include:
+
+* Using welcoming and inclusive language
+* Being respectful of differing viewpoints and experiences
+* Gracefully accepting constructive criticism
+* Focusing on what is best for the community
+* Showing empathy towards other community members
+
+Examples of unacceptable behavior by participants include:
+
+* The use of sexualized language or imagery and unwelcome sexual attention or
+advances
+* Trolling, insulting/derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
+* Public or private harassment
+* Publishing others' private information, such as a physical or electronic
+  address, without explicit permission
+* Other conduct which could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a
+  professional setting
+
+## Our Responsibilities
+
+Project maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable
+behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in
+response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.
+
+Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or
+reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions
+that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or
+permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate,
+threatening, offensive, or harmful.
+
+## Scope
+
+This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces
+when an individual is representing the project or its community. Examples of
+representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail
+address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed
+representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be
+further defined and clarified by project maintainers.
+
+## Enforcement
+
+Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be
+reported by contacting the project team at [upspin@googlegroups.com](mailto:upspin@googlegroups.com).
+All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response
+that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The project team
+is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an
+incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted
+separately.
+
+Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good
+faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other
+members of the project's leadership.
+
+## Attribution
+
+This Code of Conduct is adapted from the [Contributor Covenant][homepage], version 1.4,
+available at [http://contributor-covenant.org/version/1/4][version]

+# Contributing to Upspin
+
+Upspin is an open source project.
+
+It is the work of many contributors. We appreciate your help!
+
+
+## Filing issues
+
+When filing an issue, make sure to answer these five questions:
+
+1. What version of Upspin are you using?
+2. What operating system and processor architecture are you using?
+3. What did you do?
+4. What did you expect to see?
+5. What did you see instead?
+
+Sensitive security-related issues should be reported to the private
+[upspin-security@googlegroups.com](mailto:upspin-security@googlegroups.com)
+mailing list.
+
+
+## Contributing code
+
+We do not use GitHub pull requests
+(we use [an instance](https://upspin-review.googlesource.com/) of the
+[Gerrit](https://www.gerritcodereview.com/) code review system instead).
+
+Our code review process is the same as that used by the Go project.
+Please read the Code Review section of
+[Go's Contribution Guidelines](https://golang.org/doc/contribute.html#Code_review)
+to learn how to send patches to Upspin.
+That document covers registering with
+[our Gerrit instance]((https://upspin-review.googlesource.com/)),
+configuring the `git-codereview` tool,
+signing a Contributor License Agreement,
+and the process of creating, reviewing, and submitting changes.
+
+Unless otherwise noted, the Upspin source files are distributed under
+the BSD-style license found in the LICENSE file.
