I have that question on my list too. Since it's nonmoderated, there needs to
be some check though. I'm thinking they have at least successfully completed
the challenge. Successfully completed the challenge means they have received
the badge. But maybe it's just the self-assessment "I completed" check for
all the challenge's tasks.

Yes, we need to be able to allow people to be added via admin and bypass the
usual path to adoption status.

Yes, that's what John said.

I saw mentor role on a document but I think it was supposed to be 'adopter.'
It's on my question list, I think. I'm double checking that list after work
tonight and then sending it out for answers.

Makes sense.

Right, that's on my list too about notifications. Since we don't have a
wall, people will get it via email only or inbox (could be spammy) or maybe
be able to visit a view that shows submissions that haven't been evaluated

Also, maybe we should clarify with "active" adopters. That way people aren't
emailing those that haven't been on in a month. Not so big a deal for this
release, but maybe in the future.

Yes. It is one of the roles. It could be more weight but I think right now
it's not. cc'd Chloe, Erin and Carla to make sure they see this :)

They get notified though and are listed as helpers.

True. That's on my list too. I guess we can have a setting in notifications
like other places where we can at least cut down on emails until we figure
that out.
