GSoC ribbon/badge for hackergotchi

As we hit the mid-term point for the Google Summer of Code in Fedora, an idea came up of a simple way to draw attention to GSoC planet posts. By comparison, GNOME has this badge that appears under the hackergotchi of the student:


Another idea I like is a banner/ribbon that is mounted directly within the hackergotchi, such as this one for FUDCon:


And can we get Marketing to help us get the word out about these kind of cool tricks to show when people are involved in an important, short-lived Fedora event such as a FAD or FUDCon?

We may need some hackergotchi services if any of the GSoC students are stuck without one; I'll be sure to send them here for help. :)

It seems this one was not picked up in time for the '09 summer of code, should this one be addressed (be it early) for the '10 summer of code?

FWIW, i did the original FUDCON ribbons, and the source SVG (and PNG's) are available on my fedorapeople:

<mizmo> this is for GSoC ribbon/badges for hackergotchi <mizmo> we usually have badges for hackergotchi for events, summer of code, things like that <mizmo> i think we should make this ticket instead to make a template for hackergotchi ribbons <mizmo> so someone could install modata, open up the template, and make the badge say whatever they need

After discussing them on the mailing list I've published the hackergotchi ribbons on a wiki page and blogged about it on Planet Fedora.

Wiki page: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Hackergotchi_ribbons Blog post: http://jefsblog.wordpress.com/2010/07/04/introducing-hackergotchi-ribbons/

The wiki page contains the sources.

I think this is enough to close to ticket, but correct me if I'm wrong!
