The evaluation is a good idea, but it would have to be something maybe
only devrel had access to. With the Summer of Code, many students
leave the project after they're finished, but with a new dev they're
just starting a (hopefully) long relationship with their mentor. I
personally would hesitate to point out the weak points of an
experienced developer if I were just starting out here. Something to
think about...
