Built in badge for releases
Problem to solve
Gitlab only offers 2 badges: pipeline and code coverage. Theres a lot more to a project then those two aspects, and there should be more badges to reflect that. The first I suggest is a Latest Release badge
Opening a merge request to create the badge. Will follow the same pattern as the pipeline badge and coverage
for example: https://img.shields.io/badge/Latest%20Release-v10.3.4-blue
The 2 fields required for badges is "Image url" and "Link". The image url will look like
and link will be
Permissions and Security
The badge should work for private repos as well as public. This is the reason gitlab should provide these badges: so that granting access to external badge generators isn't required.
What does success look like, and how can we measure that?
What is the type of buyer?
