This initiative started with a proposal by Balance Internet Enterprise Solution Partner in early 2018. After review and consideration, we have created the Contributing Partner badge. For July 2018, we reviewed all community contributions and significant contributions on Special projects to determine our first partners eligible for this badge. We expect to highlight additional partners once we review contributions tracked from July onward.
How Do Partners Earn the Badge?
We recognize Partners for their valuable contributions to Magento including core components and special projects. With this new program, we will award "Contributor" badges in the Partner Directory on a monthly basis.
A great way to be eligible for the Contributor badge is to provide significant contributions to Magento 2 Open Source (500+ contribution points in total over 3 consecutive months), or contribute to Special projects (such as MSI, GraphQL, PWA, DevDocs, etc), or earn top contributor of the month, or earn top contributor of the Q3 2018.
We'll share detailed information on badge eligibility through the Partner Portal later in August 2018.
