Proposed new criteria: SUGGEST putting a badge link somewhere on the project website

David A. Wheeler

Currently users and potential co-developers can’t easily see if a project they’re looking at has a badge. In addition, if the badge is to be useful, people need to know that the badging project exists (without having to go to a website that they don’t know exists).


Here’s a potential FUTURE criteria – thoughts?


It is SUGGESTED that the project website, or front page of its repository, provide a link to its CII badge entry, including a graphic showing its current status.  DETAILS: If it’s on the project website it doesn’t need to be on its front page.  If the project website and repository front page are different, and it’s possible to put the badge status information on both, we encourage putting it on both.
