Badge description: You've visited a Fedora booth at an event.
1) What are those activities?
Visiting Fedora booth at a conference/meetup/etc.
2) Who is doing them (are they packagers? translators? newcomers? veterans? users? sponsors?)
Anyone, but the main target here are newcomers.
3) Why are they doing them (is this a means to a different end?)
They want to get some swag. Now thay can also have a badge.
4) When do they do them (every day? once a year?)
Once per an event.
5) How do they do them (by talking in IRC? by running commands in the console? by using a web interface?)
By showing up in person.
I think we don't have the time and energy to create badges for all conferences where Fedora has a presence. On the other hand, I'm now on PyCon SK and lot of new potential contributors are showing up and asking interesting questions. If we could award them a badge, we can then see if they become active lately or not. (See https://networksfordata.wordpress.com/2016/03/08/fedora-at-fosdem/) My idea here is that we will have a general badge for events without a specific badge. We would need to protect the URL somehow (i.e. creating a specific URL before an event and disabling it after).
