Dear GCC Project Members,

(Sorry for consuming the bandwidth.)

I've been doing some academic research on open-source 
software development taking GCC as a case. I've found 
something interesting and plan to publish a paper in 
ACM conference on computer supported cooperative work.

As I wrote to this mailing list on March 2, 2000 (I 
think most of you forget...), I would like to post the 
URL of the paper and have some feedback (if you have 
time).

Please understand that this is an academic study and 
focuses on particular aspects. But, I hope it partly 
explains how open-source software succeeds.

Please download the paper (PDF) from,
 http://www.lab7.kuis.kyoto-u.ac.jp/~yamauchi/papers/yamauchi_cscw2000.pdf
Summary is available,

Since page-by-page browsing does not work, copy the 
entire file to your disk first. 

I don't quote any specific email messages in the paper.

I also admire your great work as one of the users of 
GCC.
