Information about doctoral research project

Dear mod_perl contributors,

This is to inform briefly about my research purpose in relation to the 
mod_perl project. I’m a PhD student in educational science at University 
of Oslo, Norway. The research is focused on interaction and knowledge 
sharing in open source projects. More specific, it’s about how shared 
understandings evolve around open source codes.

Due to the dynamic distributed peer review and high quality output of 
the mod_perl project, it is of special interest for gaining deeper 
insight into the ‘knowledge machineries’ associated with open source 
software development.

The plan is to read through the mailing list archive available at and study the 
content of postings from two contrasting sub-groups within the project 
that contributes frequent and less frequent.

The research is conducted from July 15th until November 29th this year. 
Results will be published and shared in a monograph with the working 
title “Intersubjectivity around expert objects - Inquiries into the 
knowledge practices of software development”.

Keep up the good work.

Best regards, Pål Fugelli
PhD Researcher University of Oslo
