  16. 16. Things to make you think AFTER Reorganize material: - Can a third person follow the development of the project? - Is the TwinSpace clear? - Is there enough documentation? - What should be public and what should be kept private?
  17. 17. Things to make you think AFTER Are you satisfied? Then, why don’t you go for a Quality Label? - Ask your NSS - Create a “visitor” for evaluators - QL application is only a guide for evaluators: if you have more documentation, add it in the TwinSpace - Put yourself in the place of an evaluator: is everything clear?
