I don't think we ever did scores for food/accomodation. This has as long
as I've been involved always been a simple yes/no decision to sort out
completely unreasonable requests (people not involved with Debian and/or
Free Software at all that nobody knows).
For travel sponsorship penta had two scores (involvement in Debian and
amount requested IIRC). But these have been a bit confusing, so yes the
general consensus in the past has been that only one dimension of rating
would be better. Is that what you mean?

I don't think it's too late. The idea was IIRC mainly proposed by Steve.
Mabe he can comment a bit more on it.

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter.
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
