Kevin had asked me to publish his survey.
Find below his invitation:
Newcomer experience and contributor behavior in LibreOffice and other
FOSS communities ? Survey
I am a PhD candidate in the School of Information Management at
Victoria University of Wellington, and my research topic is about the
influence of newcomer experience on contributor behaviour and
performance in Free/Open Source Software communities.
If you have joined the LibreOffice community within the last 2 years,
I would like to invite you to complete an online survey. I am
interested in hearing from people who are either technical or
non-technical contributors, and who have had either positive or
negative newcomer experiences.
The data you provide will help gain insights about the experience of
newcomers within the LibreOffice community. It will also be used to
improve the survey before it is later administered to contributors
from other FOSS projects.
This survey is anonymous, and no information that would identify you
is being collected. The results of the research may be deposited in
the library?s institutional repository or presented at conferences or
published as articles in professional or academic journals. You may
request to be emailed the results of this research. Email addresses
are stored in a separate database and cannot be linked to participant
responses. The School of Information Management Human Ethics Committee
has approved this research project.
I expect the survey to take around 20 minutes of your time.
If you know members of the LibreOffice community who you think would
be interested in completing it, please do not hesitate to let them
know about this research.
The survey is available at:
It will be available until Monday, 29 October, 2012.
I will post news about my progress with this research, and the results
on my blog: http://kevincarillo.org. If you have any questions, please
contact me at Kevin.Carillo@vuw.ac.nz or my supervisors Sid Huff at
Sid.Huff@vuw.ac.nz and Brenda
Chawner at Brenda.Chawner@vuw.ac.nz.
