I am doing a PhD at Victoria university of Wellington (in New Zealand) and I am currently working 
on a research project that studies the influence of FOSS community newcomer experience on 
contributor behaviour (including community citizenship behaviours).

I am right now running a validation survey within the Perl community and will be running a 
full-scale survey in about 2 weeks  involving several FOSS communities. So far, KDE, Mozilla, 
Debian, and Gentoo are keen to participate. I am still trying to get more projects involved.

Here is a blog post I have written in relation to the project and the current Perl survey. It may 
give some further info:

 I am interested in including the LibreOffice community in the study as it is a very active and 
successful project which would provide insightful results. The dataset will be released under a CC 
license so that the involved projects will be able to work on the data themselves, hoping that the 
data can be beneficial to them.

I have already talked to Florian Effenberger and he has been enthusiastic and supportive towards 
the project. He has also suggested me to discuss about the survey to people in this mailing list.

Once the survey is live,  I would like to kindly request the help of some of you to help spread the 
word about the survey to LibreOffice community members. I would also like to ask whether some of 
you could share their insights about the best way to advertise the survey to LibreOffice people so 
that the chance to get a reasonable rate of participation is somehow optimal.
