Re: Draft criteria for passing+1 and pasing+2 - comments?

I think the normal meaning for “majority” is “more than 50%”, but we can say that directly.


Of course, the other question is, “is that the ‘right’ criterion in the first place?”

While browsing through the list this just caught my eye.


Upgrade: Reporting

  • Upgrade
    • enhancement_responses: SHOULD to MUST. "The project MUST respond to a majority of enhancement requests in the last 2-12 months (inclusive)."

Ok, what do we mean by most?  50.1%, 99.9% there is a lot of wiggle room with "majority".

We have an updated draft set of criteria for “passing+1” and “passing+2”:


These are *not* the final product – but I’d really like to hear comments about them.


I really want to make it *possible* for small projects to get higher-level badges, but clearly *some* activities that reduce risk for users *do* require more people (e.g., for multi-person review, bus factor, etc.).  The current draft attempts to make passing+1 possible for small projects, while passing+2 includes criteria that help a project but are not practical for small projects.  Well, that was the idea anyway.
