Fedora uses the https://freenode.net[Freenode IRC network] and https://telegram.org/[Telegram] for instant messaging and communication. You can use the messaging client of your choice, as the IRC channel and Telegram group are bridged together. Short discussions and planning happen in our group chat.
Never used IRC before? See the https://fedoramagazine.org/beginners-guide-irc/[Beginner's Guide to IRC] on the Fedora Magazine. Additionally, you can connect temporarily in a chat session in your browser via https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=fedora-badges[Freenode web chat]. However, if you want to stay connected even when you are not online, consider https://opensource.com/article/17/5/introducing-riot-IRC[using Riot] as your IRC client.
The IRC channel is also bridged to a Telegram group, https://t.me/fedorabadges[@fedorabadges]. Join the group at https://t.me/fedorabadges[t.me/fedorabadges].

Start on a task
There are three ways to contribute to Fedora Badges:
As a designer
As a developer
As a system administrator
Before you begin any of the following tasks, https://lists.fedoraproject.org/admin/lists/badges.lists.fedoraproject.org/[introduce yourself on the mailing list]!
The Fedora Badges community accepts requests for new badges in a public issue tracker on https://pagure.io/fedora-badges/issues[pagure.io/fedora-badges]. The community opens an issue there when they have a new idea for a badge. To get started with badge design, follow these steps: La comunauté des badges de Fedora accepte les requêtes pour de nouveaux badges dans un système de suivi public ici https://pagure.io/fedora-badges/issues[pagure.io/fedora-badges]. La communauté ouvre un ticket quand de nouvelles idées pour les badges sont formulées. Pour débuter avec la conception de nouveaux badges, suivez ces étapes :
Review xref::design-badges.adoc[How to design a Fedora Badge] documentation
Set up Inkscape with Badges color palettes, fonts, and templates (provided in documentation)
Review Badge tickets tagged as https://pagure.io/fedora-badges/issues?status=Open&tags=artwork+-+needed[artwork - needed]
If nobody is assigned to the issue, leave a comment that you want to work on the Badge artwork
A Badges contributor will reply to confirm the Badge is possible and ready to be worked on (we don't want you to make a design for a Badge that isn't technically possible!)
Begin designing the badge, post SVGs/PNGs of your artwork to the issue for review
_NOTE_: This section is specific to Outreachy Summer 2020 applicants.
You can also contribute code to the Fedora Badges project. There are two git repositories to contribute code:
