Title: Reminder: Final evaluation deadline on <date> (in W weeks)
Category: Development
Tags: gsoc

Hello, GSoC contributors and mentors.

I would like to remind you that the **final evaluation** deadline is due on <date>, which is in less than a week (next Monday). If not already done so, it's time to think about what you need to do to wrap up your work and not leave everything on the last minute.

Below is an extract from the [timeline](https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/timeline):

    Sept 5 - 12: Contributors wrap up their projects and submit final work product URL and evaluation of their mentor in their Final Submission form
    September 12 - 19: Mentors submit Final Evaluations of contributors
    September 20: Initial results of GSoC 2022 are announced

Make sure you are clear on the expectations and do not forget to:
* properly **document, package and release** your contributor "work product" (i.e. everything you have worked on during the GSoC) and
* **fill in the final evaluation**, when requested by Google.

Contributors and mentors need to work **together** and make sure the work package respects [**Google's requirements**](https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/help/work-product). Contributors should not submit the their final evaluation before consulting with the mentor(s) regarding the work package link.

Also, as suggested in the [requirements](https://developers.google.com/open-source/gsoc/help/work-product), this would be the perfect time to blog about your experience and the work you've done during this summer.

Hope you've had a great time so far and that you've grown to like XWiki's community and want to stick around. Also, based on your results, hope to see you on the list of successful contributors ;).
