Subject Re: Interested in helping a research study on Eclipse?
Date Mon, 25 Jul 2011 23:04:58 GMT

We're happy to announce that CodingSpectator now supports Eclipse Indigo (3.7) -- 
the latest version of Eclipse.

We are looking for more participants. Your participation in our study will help to keep 
the Eclipse platform innovative. If you couldn't participate in the study because you 
had to use Indigo, you can now install CodingSpectator.

If you are interested, please sign up at 
<http://codingspectator.cs.illinois.edu/ConsentForm> to participate in our study.

We are thankful to those of you who have already participated in our study.

your participation and help in our research study.

background and periodically uploads it to a secure server at UIUC. To get a 
representative perspective of how you interact with Eclipse, we would appreciate if 
you could install CodingSpectator for two months. Rest assured that we are taking 
the utmost measures to protect your privacy and confidentiality.
