FWIW, this part of the process could be made considerably more efficient for both the projects and the TOC as well.

Right now, when sandbox projects are sent out and come back with answers, there's no paper trail for the questions and the answers. This forces TOC members to re-evaluate the project from scratch.

My suggestion for a simple process that would solve this. If a project needs to answer questions or get inspected by a TAG, what happens is:

1. The TOC writes the questions in an issue in the TOC repo
2. The project or the TAG (depending) answer those questions in the TOC repo.
3. Evaluation is resumed whenever the questions are answered.

This would spare TOC members from effectively starting over each time a project re-applies.
