Inizia con i Badge!

Fedora Badges are a fun way to earn virtual badges for doing helpful things in the Fedora community. There are hundreds of badges to earn for all types of activities---technical and non-technical tasks. To learn more about Fedora Badges, read the website for more info.

This page introduces a few Fedora Badges that you can earn when you start your Fedora journey.

Involvement

Involvement is awarded when you sign the Fedora Project Contributor Agreement (FPCA). You can sign the FPCA in your profile in the Fedora Account System (FAS).

White Rabbit

White Rabbit is awarded when you set your time zone in your Fedora Account System (FAS) account. Some tools in Fedora will display your time zone or what your current local time is. This is helpful so others know when you may be around or not to disturb you. To set your time zone in FAS, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Fedora Account System

  2. Enter your credentials and select Login

  3. Click Edit profile in the left side bar

  4. Change the Time Zone field to your current time zone in your profile

  5. Select Save

This badge is not awarded immediately. You should receive it in a few days of updating your time zone.

Crypto Badger

Crypto Badger is awarded when you add an SSH key to your Fedora Account System (FAS) account. If you have a SSH key pair already, you can add your SSH key system to your FAS account with the steps below.

To learn more about SSH keys and how to generate them on a Fedora Linux installation, see this wiki page.

Once you have your SSH key pair, you should have two files. The defaults are: ~/.ssh/id_rsa and ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub. The first is your private key, keep this safe! The second is your public key, and is the one we share.

  1. Go to Fedora Account System

  2. Enter your credentials and select Login

  3. Click Edit profile in the left side bar

  4. Go to tab SSH & GPG Keys

  5. Copy the contents of your public key file, ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub, an paste it in the text box for SSH Keys.

  6. Select Save

The badge is awarded once per week, so you may not get the badge immediately. If it is longer than seven days, ask for help in #fedora-admin on IRC.
