+# Code of Conduct
+This is a project of the [Apache Software Foundation](https://apache.org)
+and follows the ASF [Code of Conduct](https://www.apache.org/foundation/policies/conduct).
+If you observe behavior that violates those rules please follow the [ASF reporting guidelines](https://www.apache.org/foundation/policies/conduct#reporting-guidelines).
+This will ensure that a path to the ASF-wide code of conduct is displayed on all ASF projects on GitHub, unless a project has chosen to create their own such file to display instead.
+See GitHub's article for storing organization-wide community health files in a centralized repository: https://github.blog/changelog/2019-02-21-organization-wide-community-health-files/
