Good morning Cristina,

Can you clarify what do you mean by "status"?

I called it "badges", but of course I mean "roles". Badges -- are signs of
the role. Sample: a bee-photographer image near your name on the website.

>> - support marketing channels: publishing news about new add-ons and

>> Also a point about voting:
>> All important decisions should be made by members of Order. Author of the

>> formal English language, publish them on the websites as our structure and
>> governance roles.
>> If I missed something, please add more points to the proposed petition :)
>> I created an #ootb channel in IRC to discuss points quicker. Or should we

>> Sincerely yours,
