Re: [dsdp-pmc] Study on communication and collaboration insoftwaredevelopment teams

AFAIK, he had no help from the Eclipse Foundation. FWIW, I'm pretty sure he hit every single PMC list and a few others that I watch.

I have seen such surveys before with a very low frequency

seemed low enough form me to not care so far.

The interesting thing in this case is, that Mr. Gelhaus has
managed to send E-Mail to *quite many* PMC mailing lists.
I'm wondering how he managed to do that, he must have either
had help from the Eclipse Foundation or invested quite a bit of manual work.

In either case, I don't think we are at risk of getting spammed by Bots so I wouldn't care right now. Or would anyone else want to investigate?

I consider this type of email inappropriate for our mailing list. While I'm supportive of university studies, I don't like spamming mailing lists to get survey results.

Does someone already know Mr. Gelhaus? Does anyway have a different opinion?

Subject: [dsdp-pmc] Study on communication and collaboration in softwaredevelopment teams

Dear Device Software Development Platform developer,

within the scope of my diploma thesis at the University of Paderborn, Germany, with the title "Study about communication and collaboration in software development in teams" I am conducting a survey of members of software development teams.

I would be very grateful if you help me in my studies and answer the survey at

This is the official description of the survey:

In the last years many means of communication and collaboration were introduced in software projects to assist the development teams with their daily work.

With this study we want to identify requirements for a communication- and collaboration-supporting platform for software development. For this purpose we will evaluate the utilization and effectiveness of different means of communication and collaboration in solving software and managerial problems in software development teams.

The survey will take about 10-15 minutes and contains 55 questions that cover various topics.

Many thanks for your support of my research. If there are any further questions, don't hesitate to contact me. Best regards from Paderborn, Germany

Martin Gelhaus (gelhaus@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx)
