I am a PhD candidate and former software developer researching occasional volunteers to free/libre/open source projects. I am trying to gain an understanding of the intentions and motivations of people who volunteer occasionally or infrequently in any capacity. By this I mean not only code contributions, but also filing bug reports, answering questions, speaking at conferences, translating, and so on. Even if you are a regular contributor to the Debian community, I am interested in your experience in other communities where you make fewer contributions.
I am especially interested in input from Debian contributors because the focus of my work is on volunteerism rather than paid participation. My institution, Lero, and my supervisor, Prof. Brian Fitzgerald, also have previously collaborated with the Debian community.
All my completed research is publicly available, and I will email you the published paper based on this research on request. There is also a prize drawing, with a chance to win one of four vouchers.
I'm happy to try to answer any questions you might have about my research in general or the survey in particular.
