Subject Re: Reviewing the evaluation process
Date Sat, 24 Apr 2010 00:10:29 GMT
I've been holding off on wading into this, but I think that some sort of an
idea has jelled.

I wonder about Google's statement of the mission. If Google's statement of
the mission is: "Get smart students involved in open source," then we have
one situation. If, on the other hand, it is more like "Get smart students to
do original work (in the academic sense of the term) in an open source
context," then we have another.

In the former, then those TLPs that are are stable and structured and have,
as it were, a limited set of available itches, should not be penalized. If
it's the later, than those TLPs are at an unavoidable disadvantage.
