In recent days Leslie Hawthorn published a challenge that we should All Build a Hat Rack on which to hang the hats of the people in our community who do the work that needs to be done behind the scenes, and get little professional recognition for it. She tagged it #LABHR (Let's All Build a Hat Rack)
This is close to my heart. So close, I cried when I read her post. Thanks Lesley, you truly are a champion.
Please read this now, you need to understand what she's saying, before you'll understand the suggestion that we should add LinkedIn style recommendations to our Drupal.org profiles. A simple mechanism for posting a recommendation, reviewing it and then choosing to display it one's profile or not.
We should discuss the idea itself, before making a concrete request to the Drupal.org and Profile improvement initiative that would need to work to make this happen. Once we have a sense of whether or not this is something we want, then we post a follow up feature request to the D.O queue.
The CWG queue seems to be the right place to have the initial conversation. If anyone thinks otherwise, we can always move it straight to D.O.
