Subject Re: Gamifying user lists

Fedora has "Badges"[1][2] you can earn for various levels of participation,
performing reviews, building a package, committing a bugfix, testing, etc.
You even earn silly badges for making mistakes... like pushing a change
which breaks a build. Contributors can propose new badges. It all ties into
a centralized notification system, and you can track where you are compared
to others on how many badges you've earned.

Something like that would really have to be ASF-wide, rather than
project-specific, but projects could create their own custom badges, based
on contributions to their project. ASF-wide badges could be for
participation in multiple projects, and special badges could be for serving
on the board, or chairing a project, mentoring GSoC, hosting a hackathon or
key signing party, presenting at ApacheCon, etc. The number of badges could
be very small to start (becoming a committer, committer on multiple
projects, etc.) and could grow over time.
