What I meant is that the Eudyptula Challenge doesn't have any hard-fast
rules about exactly what constitutes adequate "evidence"; the admin
leaves it up to you to decide what kind of information to provide that
would be sufficient.

One way to think of it: if you were the admin, and you were critiquing
a submission for the Task that you yourself are submitting for, what
would be enough to convince *you* that the implementation was correct?

Be very critical of yourself; it is, to my understanding, hard to
overestimate just how critical kernel devs are.

Do keep in mind, though, that I myself am also a newbie and that I am
also working through the Challenge, so do listen to everything I say
with the requisite grains of salt; hopefully more experienced members of
the mailing list can chime in as well. But I personally believe that
adopting this sort of self-critical mindset towards your work will pay
huge dividends later on.
