Comment (by coffee2code):
Beyond what was provided in the ticket, there are two things to note:
1. The convention is for each badge to correspond to a contributor team
(as is the case here) and that there are actually two related badges, a
team badge and a contributor badge.
a. The team badge is for those who are currently and actively members of
the design team. It is a temporary badge only held during such time as a
person is considered current and active and should be removed once those
are no longer the case.
b. The contributor badge is a permanent badge assigned when someone has
made some level of contribution to the team. (The team can determine their
own criteria for what merits the badge; generally some measure of active
contribution and not merely participation, though that may depend on the
team.) Naturally anyone assigned a team badge would also be implied to
have the contributor badge if not already assigned.
2. Assignment of either badge could be automated if the criteria can be
programmatically detected. In some cases this is clear (user assigned
admin role on a site, user is cited in a commit props, user has X many
posts, user has a theme/plugin, etc) and other times it's more of a
consensus by the team leads for notable, less-easily-detected contribution
(exceptionally helpful in Slack chat, consistent and high level of
participation, proposing good ideas, contributions at contributor days,
etc). Automation criteria need not be defined now (if ever), but it's
Also making note here that the fill color for team badges will be
`#fbf0da` (75% tint of the base `#eec26a ` color).
(I should get the above added to the meta P2...)
That said, @melchoyce, are the users mentioned in the ticket candidates
for the team badge? Or should those noted as "lead" be given the team
badge and everyone given the contributor badge?
