      Description

      https://moodle.org/dev/contributions.php

      It would be really great to be able to see on this page who is from HQ and who is from various big Uni's and Moodle partners. It would need to be done in a way that handles the usual privacy things and also make it easy to change and control by each user.

      I can see two sources of data:

      1) the Institution field in the user profile, which isn't currently shown on the profile even when set

      2) the domain of the users email, if shown on their profile

      If the latter is used, then perhaps this column is only shown when the viewer is logged in, but it would be nice to find some path to showing something useful for anon users.

      The domain in many ways it nicer as it's structured and you could filter or group on them, and you could even do nice things like display the favicon for open.ac.uk etc next to each

      The domain is already public data in the git commit anyway, but may not be a valid email. I'm pretty sure it's already internally being used to match the commits to the moodle user profiles so it should be there under the hood. 

      But the git commit domain is immutable, so perhaps it can be the default and is then overridden by the user's profile Institution field if it is set.
