#614 Yak farmer badge
Closed: declined a year ago by riecatnor. Opened 2 years ago by bowlofeggs.

Badge description (like "You added a co-maintainer to a package. BFF!"):
- You are a yak farmer!

Help the badges team understand what this idea is all about. If this badge is
awarded for certain kinds of activities:

1) What are those activities?
- Becoming a member of the yak_farmers FAS group.

2) Who is doing them (are they packagers? translators? newcomers? veterans?
users? sponsors?)
- A sysadmin who becomes sufficiently curmodgeony.

3) Why are they doing them (is this a means to a different end?)
- Joke.

4) When do they do them (every day? once a year?)
- When they get overburdened.

5) How do they do them (by talking in IRC? by running commands in the console?
by using a web interface?)
- Join the yak_farmers FAS group.

Lastly, do you have any ideas for artwork concepts?
- A cartoony yak?

@bowlofeggs - this badge idea is a pretty cute idea but I am not sure of what it is all about. Can you give some more background? Since it is a joke, can we come up with a task or something productive to qualify the creation of this badge? Please give us some more to work with. Thank you!!

Hi @riecatnor!

There's a running joke among some Fedora contributors that we would all be better off farming yaks than we are trying to keep Fedora going. It's a little hard to describe, but @adamwill is our chief yak farmer and perhaps he can chime in a bit.

I like this idea. It is funny :)

Nice one, but I think our resources are better devoted to other badge ideas. Thanks again!
