SQLite (//, //) is a relational database management system (RDBMS) contained in a C library. In contrast to many other database management systems, SQLite is not a client–server database engine. Rather, it is embedded into the end program.
Code of Ethics
The SQLite team published a document Code of Ethics, also known as "Code of Conduct", as a reference for developers, in which the founder and the developers participating in the project pledged to govern their interactions with each other, with their clients, and with the larger SQLite community, taking inspiration from chapter 4 of the Rule of Saint Benedict.
The spirit of Saint Benedict's Rule is summed up in the motto of the Benedictine Confederation: pax ("peace") and the traditional ora et labora ("pray and work"). Compared to other precepts, the Rule provides a moderate path between individual zeal and formulaic institutionalism; because of this middle ground it has been widely popular. Benedict's concerns were the needs of monks in a community environment: namely, to establish due order, to foster an understanding of the relational nature of human beings, and to provide a spiritual father to support and strengthen the individual's ascetic effort and the spiritual growth that is required for the fulfillment of the human vocation, theosis.
This code of ethics has proven its mettle in thousands of diverse communities for over 1,500 years, and has served as a baseline for many civil law codes since the time of Charlemagne.— Purpose, https://sqlite.org/codeofethics.html,
Number 3 of the SQLite Code of Ethics states the "instruments of good works" in foresaid chapter of the Rule of Saint Benedict:
