Those "badges" are completely useless as a reward. They're just a 
nonsensical entry on some website that I don't give a darn about. And any 
serious packager has a terabazillion badges already (including some for 
things that shouldn't be rewarded to begin with, such as failed builds). And 
the more new badges you create, the less value the existing ones have (and 
they have hardly any value to begin with).

Really, people who do work not to make Fedora better, but to collect virtual 
badges on some stupid website, are exactly the people who should NOT be 
attracted.
