Evaluation took place in 4 categories, each awarding credits ranging from 0 to 5 points, and an overall rating. We had employed an evaluation board of 4 people, the (rounded) average was used. The evaluations are here available.
Category 1: Reliability
Muon is at the moment one of the most reliable projects. Once started it runs smoothly in the background. However, the poor handling, the long training time and a missing GUI has been criticized. That is why Muon could not achieve full marks in this category.
Category 2: Communication policy
You can find almost anything your heart desires on the project website: Forum, Jabber, Twitter and so on. However, everything is just crammed onto the page, so a certain amount of search effort is necessary.
Category 3: Instructions
The client is because of his missing GUI a novelty for mostly every (Windows) user, therefore the existing guidance is not really sufficient. Moreover, the instructions is just available in English.
Category 4: Benefit for the general public
The project is necessary to be able to perform experiments with the smallest known particles. There isn't an obvious benefit to the general public visible, but this project benefits to a huge progress in fundamental research, where other projects can build upon.
We consider Muon as a highly recommendable DC project. Only the user-friendliness of the client and it's instructions are worth improving it.
