Gamification for open source software

Submitted by John on Sat, 02/29/2020 - 00:59

Here's an idea, let's gamify open source software contributions. Here's a list, it's still in development:

File an issue on a project: 10 pts.

Create a patch file and post it to that issue: 50 pts.

Have that patch file committed to the project: 100 pts.

Become a maintainer for a project: 1000 pts

Incorporate a contributed patch for a project you maintain: 200 pts.

Write a unit test for a project (either one you maintain or not) 300 pts

Make your first core contribution to:

  • Drupal: 500 pts.
  • Wordpress: 500 pts.

Other projects...
