What is expected of a Qt Champion
A Qt Champion is there to show what the Qt Community is best at.
The Qt Champion is friendly and has shown active participation with the Qt project.
Limited time only
Once you are given the title of Qt Champion, you will hold the title for a year.
If you achieve the title for three years, you will be entitled for a lifetime title. If you are so committed to the project, you need to be recognised beyond a normal Qt Champion title.
But I get paid to do this! / What if we are a company?
Yes, some of us are paid to work on Qt by our employers. Mostly on the code base, but also testing, documentation and other essential work goes on in the project. Some of the people who do get paid to work on the project do so above and beyond the normal limits of their day jobs (coding all day and helping newcomers in their free time, for example). We need metrics to find these people and provide them with a Qt Champion title too.
