Fedora Open Badges (Badgers)

Filed under
Linux

So you might be aware of an ongoing project to create and deploy an open badge system to reward contributors for doing cool stuff across Fedora. (What are open badges? You can read about them in detail at openbadges.org; the short of it is that it’s an open infrastructure/standard for awarding people digital badges for achievements.)

Ralph and crew, which includes RIT co-ops, have been doing an awesome job creating the Fedora badges infrastructure; Jenn, the team design co-op, also did some awesome badge artwork. To get the full set of badges needed for Flock together in time, though, they needed some help. Since I’d just come back from a long leave of absence last week and had a pretty clear plate to crank stuff out, Ralph & Spot asked me for some help in completing the set of Flock badges.

Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
