Request for comments: The Sustainys


I think It is time for an award ceremony for open source sustainers. I’m thinking they will be handed out at the next event. Categories:

  • Sustainer of the year (2018)

    • Individual
    • For-profit Organization
    • Non-profit Organization
  • Best Documentation

  • Best Fundraiser

  • Best Accessibility

  • Best Governance

  • Best Researcher

  • Best Blog Post

  • Best Community Manager

  • Best Licensing Advocate

  • Lifetime Achievement

What categories are missing?


Hey this is a good initiative and I am sure that people would feel motivated and inspired for being an Open Source Sustainers.
Just a suggestion as Open Source Contribution includes lot of things like Open Source Coder, Open Source Designer, OS Outreacher ,etc defining these things also would be encouraging.


@jdorfman what’s your opinion


Outreach could be one. Coder, designer, don’t really fall under the “sustainer” umbrella. There are coders and designers that are also sustainers but that isn’t the point of this award. It’s too shine a light on those who rarely get any recognition.
