Survey on Commits in Open and Closed Source Projects

Please help the open source research group by taking this survey on code contributions in open and closed source projects!


Update 2009-12-30: We enhanced the survey based on your feedback and are keeping it open now until Jan 15, 2010. Please help out!

The survey consists of 10 (+4) questions. We will publish the results or send them directly to you if you wish!

A bit more information for those interested: We are trying to assess the code contribution distribution, that is, how much code and how frequently people check-in. More importantly, what they think how they contribute. The answers are expected to vary, hence the notion of “distribution”. Better understanding code contribution behavior will help us build better software development tools.
