Subject Fwd: [ALL] Badges for github README.md
Date Sat, 14 Mar 2015 14:45:06 GMT
Hi,

is anybody aware of any (legal) problems if projects use services like
Travis CI [1] or coveralls.io [2] for mirrors at github? An example of how
that would look like can be found at [3]

Thanks,
Benedikt

[2] http://coveralls.io

You can! :-) Since you've taken the lead on the badges, you could follow it
through to @legal. You probably know more about them than the rest of us.
