Subject An invitation for the Tomcat team from UMBC
Date Mon, 09 May 2011 18:29:23 GMT
Hello Tomcat team!

The Empirical and Applied Software Engineering Lab (EASEL) at the University
of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) would like to extend an invitation to
you to participate in a focus group, and to accept a $150 contribution (see
below for details) from us as an incentive. We believe that your
participation would be a good opportunity for you to share ideas among
yourselves about Tomcat, and would be a valuable contribution to our
research in software quality and development productivity.

We are studying the changes that Open Source Software goes through when
releasing a new version or making other modifications to the code, to find a
way to predict when these changes will become problematic, and develop
solutions to make them cost-effective and time-efficient. Hence, we would
like for you to share information with us during a focus group about the
changes your code has gone through, the causes for these changes, what kinds
of changes are problematic, and how you have handled these.
We would contribute $150 to your project should we get 5-7 team members to
participate in our focus group. These members should

   - have been part of the team for about 2 years or long enough to have
   seen a few significant changes on existing code base, and
   - contributed to the code or significantly to the project in the past six
   months, and
   - Be at least 18 years old

Please let us know should you have any additional questions, and if you
would be interested in participating.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
