SpECTRE Code of Conduct - Reporting Guide

If you believe someone is violating the code of conduct, you can always file a report by emailing condu.nosp@m.ct@s.nosp@m.pectr.nosp@m.e-co.nosp@m.de.or.nosp@m.g, or discuss it informally and confidentially with one of the project leaders. All reports will be kept confidential.
