Hi Andrea,
None of the reports were submitted to any of the communities. We aimed at completely independent evaluations and the method itself was designed to enable users to perform their own evaluation. We cannot expect users to contact communities each time an evaluaiton is performed. (-;
Although in few cases - e.g. Degree we contacted the developers/communities to get information we needed for documentation. In many cases the documentation of the FOSSG projects was ... Let's say it was very often quite challanging to get information we needed. The lacking information was gained through hands-on experience.
I would love to discuss the details, but I think the list in not a right place for it. Please feel free to send you remarks on my e-mail address: Rafal.Wawer at sadl.kuleuven.be.

I am wondering if the GeoServer report was submitted to the GeoServer community for double checking? I've noticed a few errors in the report (even for beginning 2008).
For example we had in-build testing since spring 2007, the project was already more than 5 years old in 2008 and so on.
