Subject GSoC mentee evaluation: Original ideas
Date Thu, 15 Apr 2010 22:00:13 GMT
Suggestion for next year, so I think dev@community is appropriate.
Perhaps some folks on code-awards@ may have input, so CC'ed that list.

I think those mentees that suggest original ideas for GSoC projects
and manage to get committers interested in mentoring those original
project ideas should be recognized with a separate evaluation question
in the mentee ranking process. While question two currently includes
"original input" it can be interpreted in various ways (original
project idea, original proposed solution etc.).

I am suggesting the following for next year and beyond:

 * Is the project definition and idea originally the mentee's, the
mentor's or a collaborative effort? (0-2 points, 2 if mentee's idea, 1
if collaborative, 0 if mentor's)

Thereby, coming up with an idea and garnering mentor interest becomes
a dimension in the mentee that gets rewarded (as it should be, IMO).
