Are you a Fedora contributor newbie?

Kevin Carillo has been running an anonymous survey for folks who’ve joined the open source community as a contributor no earlier than January 2010.
Kevin very kindly added Fedora to the list of projects that are part of the survey, so if you are a new-ish Fedora contributor and you’d like to help this important research, it would be very helpful if you were willing to take a few minutes and complete the survey.
All of the data from the survey is going to be licensed under an open ‘share-alike’ license (Open Data Commons Open Database License), with any participant-identifying data scrubbed out before release. (Yes, you can be honest 😉 ) Kevin is also using Lime Survey to conduct the research, which is pretty cool since it’s also open source software.
I’m pretty sure the survey will close this Friday, December 7. When I last spoke to Kevin, we had no respondents for Fedora; help us not be a big goose-egg (“0”) in the statistics, and help further research on contributions in open source communities!
