Apache/Spark community members are invited to take part in the Express 2019 F/OSS-Firms Survey!

Hi everyone

We are looking for participants to help us with a study on the
sustainability of free and open source software, ‘Mapping the co-production
of digital infrastructure by peer projects and firms’, which is funded by a
Sloan and Ford Foundations grant.

We are trying to learn about how commercial firm engagement with F/OSS, for
example in the form of paying developers to develop F/OSS, impacts volunteer
projects such as Apache/Spark.

Our quantitative survey of GitHub shows that Apache/Spark is one of the top
recipients of commits by people with a professional email address (eg
@microsoft.com), which is why we are reaching out to members of the
Apache/Spark community.

Participation in the survey requires about five minutes of your time (there
are only seven questions). If you are involved in Apache/Spark as a
developer, maintainer or contributor, please follow the link below to answer
our questions:


The research team:  Mathieu O’Neil, University of Canberra; Xiaolan Cai,
University of Canberra; Laure Muselli, Telecom Paris; Mahin Raissi,
University of Canberra; Stefano Zacchiroli, Universite Paris Diderot / INRIA
& former Debian Project Leader

Duration: The survey will run for 2 weeks, from November 25 to December 9

This research has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee at
the University of Canberra (Project no. 1865).
