  • I had a couple of enquiries if there'd be * Woman badges as well for those who wanted, and of course there will be - but Mark Keating [] (who did the original set as a sort of pre-announce publicity thing) was away on holiday at our friend Jane's wedding, so didn't have time to create all of them. I should probably have waited, but I was asked by Paul Fenwick [], for whom I have the utmost respect for his work on changelogging for perl core, (along with his choice to sign up to the competition :), to provide "(Paper|Stone|Bronze|Iron) Woman badges" - so given the competition hadn't been running long enough for anybody to earn any badge but paper I asked Mark to try and take time away from Jane's festivities to produce at least the Paper Woman so we could ensure that parity was observed, with the knowledge that he'd be back in the UK in time for the rest to be produced before anybody of either gender achieved them.

    I am extremely sorry for any offence caused by the disparity between the pre-announce and the limited response we were able to provide in response to Paul's feedback without disrupting our friend's wedding, and hope that you'll be kind enough to forgive us for it provided we have blog appropriate Stone, Bronze and Iron Woman badges by the time the contest has been running long enough for those to be earned.
