1 Sorry for disturbing!
4 Hello,
6 My name is Frauke Lehmann and I'm writing my master thesis about the
7 social formation of free software/open source (FS/OS) developers. A
8 questionnaire is one part of my research - besides interviews and
9 observations.
10 It would be really nice, if you supported my survey by filling in my
11 questionnaire (takes 20-30 min).
12 I understand FS/OS developers as people who are writing code
13 (obviously), but also those that write documentation, do translations,
14 design GUIs, or people that take care of the project's infrastructure
15 (mailing lists etc.) or answer users' questions.
16 I'm going to publish my thesis (once it's done) on my website
17 (
18 It will be freely available in German (the orginal) and as an English
19 translation (after some time) and it will be allowed to distribute it
20 freely.
22 If you have any questions about my project, please feel free and email
23 me.
25 Thanks for taking the time reading this mail and hopefully filling in
26 the questionnaire. Which you will find at

33 ps I: I do have a further question: When was gentoo launched? I couldn't
34 find this information on the project website.
35 ps II: Sorry, if this isn't the proper lists to send my request to. If
36 it is not, it would be nice, if you forwarded it the right one.
