Currently, there’s a bit of a name collision between “SourceCred” (the technology and project) and “the SourceCred community”.
Similarly, there’s a name collision between “cred” (the reputation metric that SourceCred creates) and “cred in SourceCred”.
This makes for some confusion. For example, if I’m inviting someone to contribute to SourceCred, and I say that their contribution will earn “cred”, they might think that “cred” is a single universal metric. What I mean is, they’ll earn “cred in SourceCred itself”, but it’s super cumbersome to say this all the time.
Therefore, I propose the following names:
CredCore: The community building SourceCred.
CoreCred: Cred within CredCore.
I think they’re cute, but feel free to push back if they’re too confusingly close.
Attribution note: “CredCore” was first suggested by @nicola.
