Comment (by johnjamesjacoby):

 > Even if it's a sister project (to be fair, I don't why it matters) it's
 still a plugin. And for plugins we already have a badge. If you want to
 give your contributors credits I suggest to add them to the 'Contributors'
 field in the readme.txt. That's something we (the GP team) already do for

 Absolutely not.

 If that's what you're choosing to do with GlotPress, I think that's
 currently up to you to decide how deeply you choose to integrate it.

 BuddyPress & bbPress aren't just some old plugins that deserve to get
 vetoed out of the community limelight. They are integral parts of
 WordPress's surrounding culture, community, and history.

 You wondering why it matters is not you being fair. The teams of people
 behind these plugins should not need to fight to maintain their existing
 relationships every some-odd years. It's insulting, and - to be fair - an
 exhausting waste of time for everyone that is better spent literally doing
 anything else.
