Hi GSoC 2013 Mentors and Org Admins,

Per the program timeline [0], starting on Monday, 29 July you will
will be able to submit an evaluation of your student(s)' progress on
their projects thus far. Here's some important info on midterm
evaluations for those not familiar:

Midterm evaluations are done via Melange [1]. Starting at 19:00 UTC on
29 July you will be able to submit an evaluation for your
student(s).You can find the evaluation links on your dashboard under
'Evaluations', one for each student you are a mentor (or co-mentor)
for. If you are curious about who can see evaluations after they are
submitted, please check out the FAQ on Evaluations [2]. I have also
pre-published the evaluation questions below in this email so you can
prepare.  The deadline is 19:00 UTC on Friday, 2 August.

You may not submit your evaluation before or after the evaluation
window. Please ask your org admin to submit yourevaluation for you if
you absolutely cannot submit yours during the time allotted. Primary
mentors, co-mentors, and org admins may all submit evaluations of
their students.**Students must have an evaluation on file from both
themselves *and* their mentors in order to receive their midterm
payments.** There is no excuse for missing the submission of a
student's evaluation.


You must submit an evaluation for every student you are the primary
mentor for this year. You must fill out the entire survey in one
session as there's no auto-save in Melange. You may submit, modify,
and resubmit an evaluation as many times as you choose up until the
deadline.

Please note that failing a student at the midterm evaluation means
*this student is immediately removed from the program.* There is no
way to fail a student at the midterm and have the student continue
with the program to try to "make it up" at the final. If your student
fails, your student is out.

You might find the FLOSS manual on GSoC evaluations [3] helpful as
well. There's some excellent wisdom in there from your fellow mentors
and org admins on the evaluation process.

Finally, a reminder: This year we will not allow any mentor who misses
an evaluation deadline to attend the mentor summit (assuming no one
else submits the evaluation on the mentor's behalf before the deadline
either). Also, any org that misses 2 or more evaluation deadlines (for
the midterm, final, or midterm and final combined) will not be invited
to attend the mentor summit this year.

Please let me know directly if you have questions or concerns.
