A hundred million years ago, when dinosaurs roamed Fedoraland, we
created Badges (then we were all promptly eaten by raptors).
There were, however, a few ambitious badge ideas that never happened. I
present them for wider consideration, especially in the context of the
1) User badges
Goal: Provide an opportunity for a deeper community engagement for
Fedora users, and a gentle on-ramp to moving from user to contributor.
Prompt users to opt-in to local badges during initial setup (if they do,
have them attach a FAS account or create one).
Run a local fedmsg daemon which sends notifications of local badges over
to Fedora Badges.
Examples "Installed Fedora 29!", "KDE User", "Updater Level 1"
2) Badge sets
Goal: Encourage deeper levels of Fedora engagement
Have a set with five badges, when all badges are earned, you unlock a
set badge. This can encourage people to do specific behaviors that we
want them to do (or need more help doing).
2A) Swag rewards for badge sets
Complete this badge set, get a Fedora Badger shirt. Or whatever.
The current FAD proposal draft is published on the wiki; feedback and
suggestions are welcome before Friday, Dec. 7th:
We aim to submit this proposal to the Fedora Council for consideration
on Monday, December 10th.
Logistic planning is happening this week. Sayan, Tanvi, and I had a call
this morning to go over logistics. Marie and I are meeting this Thursday
to finalize the logic model, location, and budget.
The goals are divided into primary and secondary goals, where primary
goals is considered "minimum amount for success" and secondary goals are
"nice to have", if we end up with extra time.
Please let us know if you have any feedback or suggestions to the FAD
goals before Friday, Dec. 7th so we have time to work in any suggestions
before we submit.
(P.S – Don't forget to say hello in #fedora-badges on Freenode /

Hi Mohan, I am copying this to the Badges mailing list. I don't have
time right now to look closer, but I will try to take a look later this
If someone else wants to take a try at this, that would be awesome too!
