GCC Developer Collaboration Patterns

Dear GCC Developers,

The University of Passau is currently studying the mechanisms that contribute to effective collaboration in open-source projects so that appropriate tools and techniques are created to support the needs of open-source developers. To achieve this goal, we are evaluating the usefulness of software archives (e.g., mailing lists, version-control system, and bug tracker) to quantitatively model social relationships and collaborative patterns in open-source projects. The culmination of this effort is an open-source project called Codeface, which is a framework and web front-end for analyzing social and technical aspects of software development. To learn more about Codeface, please visit

We are now recruiting open-source developers to participate in a short survey. The survey is composed of 4 questions and takes about *5 minutes* to complete. We ensure that all of your information will be kept confidential and will only be used for scientific research purposes. There is no commercial interest in the results. We are merely interested in learning about your collaborative experiences as an open-source developer.

To access the survey, please click on the link below.

We highly appreciate your efforts, and we sincerely hope that you will take the time to participate. Upon completion of the survey, you may include your e-mail address so that we can send you the anonymized survey results.

We would also like to express our gratitude for support from Siemens Corporate Research and University of Applied Sciences Regensburg.
