I saw this thread on the Infrastructure mailing list and I was confused.
Does Tahrir/Badges still need a lead maintainer? I was under the
impression Xavier volunteered. I wanted to make sure everyone is on the
same page (see the excerpt below).
Does anyone know anything more? Is Badges at risk of being dropped past

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Everyone,
Welcome to week four of the CPE Weekly Updates!
/Background:The Community Platform Engineering group is the Red Hat team
combining IT and release engineering from Fedora and CentOS. Our goal is
to keep core servers and services running and maintained, build
releases, and other strategic tasks that need more dedicated time than
volunteers can give./
/For better communication, we will be giving weekly reports to the
CentOS and Fedora communities about the general tasks and work being done. /

Yes, best bet for us is to have hand on the running instances which lead me
to the following question: what about data - legal - policy regarding this
application (registered badges and person, related badges award, etc)?
