Attached email was sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regina Hebig from University of Gothenburg, Sweden and Jacob Krüger from
Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany (BCc-ed) are doing research on
which knowledge do software developers consider important. You might want to
help them. Results will be published in anonymised form; and you can choose to
get notified about that.

Dear Debian Events Team,
We are researchers aiming to understand developers' knowledge needs and
program comprehension. Our intention is to support practitioners in
selecting tools that can facilitate developers' tasks. Moreover, we hope
that our research results in the development of new tools that are
customized to the actual needs of developers.
For the purpose of understanding these needs, we designed a survey on
different knowledge types and their importance for developers. The
survey focuses particularly on the context of large, complex, and
collaborative development projects.
We contact you directly, because we thought that you may be the best
contacts for deciding whether and how to disseminate an academic survey
at Debian, and we do not want to spam your collaborators (or any other
developers). If you find the survey to be of interest for you and your
community, we would be grateful if you could promote it among your
We will make all results public in anonymized and summarized form, so
that answers cannot be traced back to individuals. For this purpose, we
will publish the results on our websites and will also send them
directly to all participants who are interested (which can be indicated
in the questionnaire).
You can find the survey under the following link, and it should take 20
minutes at most:
Thank you very much for considering our request and your help!
