I have had a look at the actual 2 forms available to get participant and
projects feedback and in my opinion, while I understand the intention,
there are too many questions. I wonder what is the actual goal of so many
detailed infos and if we could strip this down to much simpler forms in
order to get the info in for the Final report.

Also, if we need to treat that data in some way, we cannot merge fields
such as name and project all together in one field. There is a need for
distinct fields as well as there is a need to keep their number low.

I can help/do the forms but before stripping down another person's work,
I'd like to get feedback first.


I suggest we make our report available online in a dedicated page and as a
> nicely layed out PDF that could be printed as A4 and Letter formats. We
> need volunteers to put that together.
> The report helps us keep track of what has been done and this in turn
> helps us discuss with our partners and sponsors. As we're growing, this
> becomes critical.
> Timely feedback will be much appreciated.
> Cheers!
