Dear Valgrind User,
We'd like you to participate in the second official Valgrind survey. It
can be found at:
Our first survey was in November 2003. It was very useful and we made a
number of changes to how we do things as a result (the above page links to
a list of some of these changes).
Valgrind has changed a lot since then. This is your chance to let us know
what you think about Valgrind and how it can be improved.
This survey is shorter and better focused than the 2003 survey. We'd like
you to respond, even if you filled out the 2003 survey, or filled out an
intermediate survey on the website in the time between now and then -- the
survey evolved over that time, and we'd like all the responses to be from
the same time period. If you know a Valgrind user who doesn't read the
lists, please forward this message to them.
If you are worried about privacy: the survey can be taken anonymously,
although the survey explains why we prefer that you include your name and
email address. You don't have to answer any question you don't want to,
but we encourage you to answer all of them. We won't reveal your name or
email address to anyone outside the Valgrind team. Your response is
confidential; we won't make raw data public, only summaries (which may
include anonymous quotes). The only exception to this is if you answer
"yes" to question 16 about mentioning your project on the Valgrind
We will collect up the responses about one week from now (the exact time
depends on the response rate, we'll keep it open longer if responses are
still coming in), and post the analysis and results some time afterwards.
Thank you for your participation.
The Valgrind Team
