We celebrate Hacktoberfest by introducing OpenSourcer badge of Azure Heroes program

Today, at CONTRIBUTING.md, we announced the new addition to our #azureheroes family: The OpenSourcer badge!

👉 OpenSourcer badgers recognize those who help build a robust OSS environment, with impactful technology and a collaborative, engaged community. OpenSourcers build, maintain, and make meaningful contributions to open source projects, while inspiring others to be part of the OSS movement.

To qualify, you must:

  • Be a creator, maintainer or contributor to an impactful (in your own definition) open-source software project.
  • And react to contributors' questions and requests in Issues and Pull Requests, in a way that people with all levels of the technical experise feel welcomed in your code repository.
  • Optionally, introduce OSS by speaking, blogging and other public activities.

Hi @webmaxru , Its great news! when I checked the nomination link it doesn't include any OSS badge. Can you check that?
