Dear Fedora developers,
I am Natnaree Asavaseri and currently undertaking a research internship at Nara Institute
of Science and Technology, Japan. Note that we are not biased to either GitHub or
Microsoft, and this is purely from an empirical research perspective.
As a part of my research in the field of Software Engineering (SE), my professors and I
are analyzing the impact of Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub. The main purpose of my
survey is understanding how developers perceive the Microsoft's acquisition of GitHub,
especially from contributors to Linux distributions and BSD families. If the survey is
successful, we will publish our findings at SE academic venues (journals or conference).
So please consider voicing your opinion by allowing us up to 5 minutes to complete my
We would like to remind you that participation in this survey is completely voluntary and
your identity is hidden for anonymity. Thank you for your time in advance.
