I am Nicole Haenni and I am doing research for my thesis at the University of Berne (scg.unibe.ch) with Mircea Lungu and Niko Schwarz. I need your help to fill out the survey below. We are researching on monitoring the activity in software ecosystems.
A software ecosystem can be a company (e.g. Apple has iOS platform, Facebook ecosystem), an open source community (e.g. the Apache community), a programming language-based community (e.g. Smalltalk has Squeaksource, Ruby has Rubyforge) or project repositories like GitHub. Software projects are often distributed across repositories. Projects inside such a software ecosystem are often connected with one another because they provide or require functionalities they depend on.
This is a study about information needs that emerge in such software ecosystems.
