in my professional life i am doing a lot of "lean" and "agile" now.
one of the main goals there is to do only things that "the client"
would benefit of, as soon as possible. a client is always the "end
user", never some intermediary, or administrative person. one of the
indicators there is to minimize the seven wastes:

when i am seeing such an evaluation report i try to fit that somehow
in this agile world. who the client would be. maybe the wikipedia
readers, or the editors using commons images? then i try to imagine
what benefit they have from this report. and i try to imaging what
would happen if this report would not be there. to my shame i must
admit i cannot come up with anything reasonable *blush*. anybody of
you got a little more fantasy about benefits ?
