*Blender* would get the badge, not me.

A fair question; please let me give a quick pitch:
1. Presuming Blender *does* get the badge, it'll help give potential
    users confidence that Blender is "doing the right things".
2. If it doesn't, it will help Blender identify things it probably should be doing
    but isn't yet.  Of course, maybe the criteria are bad - in which case,
    the badging project is itself an open source software project & we'd
    love to hear how to improve it.

Again, the process is simple - someone from the project goes to
clicks on "Get a Badge" and fills in a form.  No cost.
We can help if you want once you've created the entry.
