I think this is a really good point.
Along those lines; wouldn't/couldn't bugzilla accommodate this well?
either gsoc.freebsd.org with an equivalent freebsd.org/gsoc,

bugzilla provides for ongoing dialog, code, and it would be fairly easy
to determine/review "final status" of the code/project. No?
