Join Fedora Badges community

Become a member of Fedora Badges community by following these steps.

Create a FAS account

Join the Discussion

Note: We are currently transitioning the discussion from the mailing list to Discourse.

Join us on Discourse

Most of the discussion regarding Fedora Badges takes place on Discourse. Login with your FAS account that you setup earlier.

You can quickly filter the discussion concerning Fedor Badges by using the #badges-team tag.

News, updates, and discussion are shared on Discourse. It is a key part to how we communicate. It receives low to medium traffic.

Subscribe to Fedora Badges mailing list

Note: The mailing list is very quiet at the moment. It may be retired all together in the future.

Log into the Fedora mailing lists site at lists.fedoraproject.org using your FAS account credentials. Then, find the Fedora Badges mailing list and subscribe using your personal email address. Do not use the @fedoraproject.org alias, as you are unable to send email from the address.

Join our IRC/Matrix chat

Fedora uses the Libera.Chat IRC network and Matrix for instant messaging and communication. You can use the messaging client of your choice, as the IRC and Matrix channels are bridged together. Short discussions and planning happen in our group chat.

Never used IRC before? See the Beginner’s Guide to IRC on the Fedora Magazine. Additionally, you can connect temporarily in a chat session in your browser via Libera.Chat web chat. However, if you want to stay connected even when you are not online, consider using Element as your IRC client.

The IRC channel is also bridged to Matrix.

Register on Community Blog

Start on a task

There are three ways to contribute to Fedora Badges:

  • As a designer

  • As a developer

  • As a system administrator

Before you begin any of the following tasks, introduce yourself!

As a designer

The Fedora Badges community accepts requests for new badges in a public issue tracker on Pagure. The community opens an issue there when they have a new idea for a badge. To get started with badge design, follow these steps:

  1. Review How to design a Fedora Badge documentation

  2. Set up Inkscape with Badges color palettes, fonts, and templates (provided in documentation)

  3. Review Badge tickets tagged as artwork - needed

  4. If nobody is assigned to the issue, leave a comment that you want to work on the Badge artwork

  5. A Badges contributor will reply to confirm the Badge is possible and ready to be worked on (we don’t want you to make a design for a Badge that isn’t technically possible!)

  6. Begin designing the badge, post SVGs/PNGs of your artwork to the issue for review

As a developer

This section is being worked on. The information is not yet complete.

Fedora Badges is made up of different components divided into frontend and backend. As a starter there’s a helpful document provided by the Infrastrucre Team.

Development takes place on GitHub. Issues are primarily tracked on Pagure and distributed from there.

As a system administrator

This section is being worked on. The information is not yet complete.

The Fedor Badges Team takes care of keeping things running, attending to issues and bugs filed on Pagure and keeping the documentation, what you are reading now, up to date.

If anything is not working as expected please open an issue or, if you already have a fix, submit a PR.
