[p2pu-dev] Fwd: Django app for open badges (was Re: Rails engine for open badges)

I think Brian is going to make us all backpack'd, but I would love to see
Les involved.

Badger looks spiffy and seems like it does basic badging -- fantastic -- but
we add a bit of complexity with assessments and awarding logic (beyond
perquisite badges). Kind of like how we couldn't use a bunch of the OSQA

I wonder if we can push the SoW/P2PU-specific part to badger and merge
forces that way? I'm sure other projects would like assessments and to grow
with us.

I'd love to do some pull requests, but don't want to get off track of making
sure we make our deadlines. So, it might be a few weeks or a month --
assuming Les is cool with badger going that route.

P.S. I have the badgers song stuck in my head now. ;)
