My name is Frauke Lehmann and I'm writing my master thesis about the
social formation of free software/open source (FS/OS) developers. A
questionnaire is one part of my research - besides interviews and
It would be really nice, if you supported my survey by filling in my
questionnaire (takes 20-30 min).
I understand FS/OS developers as people who are writing code

design GUIs, or people that take care of the project's infrastructure
(mailing lists etc.) or answer users' questions.
I'm going to publish my thesis (once it's done) on my website
(http://userpage.fu-berlin.de/~egal/. It will be freely available in
German (the orginal) and as an English
translation (after some time) and it will be allowed to distribute it
If you have any questions about my project, please feel free and email
Thanks for taking the time reading this mail and hopefully filling in
the questionnaire. Which you will find at
ps: Sorry, if this isn't the proper lists to send my request to. If it
is not, it would be nice, if you forwarded it the right one.
