 What are the rules here? Can other plugin/theme authors request a badge

 Since bbPress, BuddyPress, and GlotPress are sister projects of WordPress,
 and part of the same umbrella group I see no reason why they wouldn't be
 treated specially here.
 Where I draw the line in the sand would be "Does it use WordPress.org
 infrastructure, and share user tables?"

 I also see the other side of the coin though, currently the profile system
 is for ''WordPress community contributions''; Core, Docs, Translation,
 Support, WordCamps, etc, it's not immediately expected to see BuddyPress
 or bbPress core contributions on there (I mean, even WordCamps seems a
 little odd in that context).
 For example, do we add BuddyPress Docs badges too? or do they get the
 current documentation badge?

 I also see benefit of adding "I contributed to plugin x" functionality to
 WordPress.org profiles in some way, but I don't think I'd encourage that
 for the current badge system, if only because it wasn't designed to scale
 that way.
