GitHub seems to have updated the achievements feature, so what other achievements are there? Is there a list of achievements and their unlock requirements? Didn't find any documentation and post about this.

TL;DR: https://github.com/Schweinepriester/github-profile-achievements#achievements

While the answer by Smitop is currently correct, there is official documentation including specifics on how the achievements were/are earned, which presumably will be updated with future additions: https://docs.github.com/en/account-and-profile/setting-up-and-managing-your-github-profile/customizing-your-profile/personalizing-your-profile#displaying-badges-on-your-profile

Also I've created a mirror: https://github.com/Schweinepriester/github-profile-achievements

Update 2022-06-11:
Seems like I was wrong with this assumption

which presumably will be updated with future additions

as they even removed the previous three achievements from the documentation when they announced new achievements on 2022-06-09. Hence currently primarily my repo fulfills listing the achievements, including new ones.


Actually, there is a third achievement:
