The University of Koblenz-Landau (Germany) is looking for participants 
for a research study revolving around the job situation of 
(professional) open source developers. The goal of the study is to gain 
insights on the effect of developers' double commitment to the community 
and the organization. The study is aimed at employed software developers 
who also work with open source code and therefore are to some extent 
dependant on the open source community.

The study already received support by several organizations including 
the Open Source Business Foundation (OSBF), the European Commission's 
Joinup project and various open source projects (e.g. Eclipse) and 
experts (e.g. former Open Source Director at Oracle Gilles Gravier)!

As incentives, participants will be able to contribute to social 
projects for free and can subscribe to receive the research results. For
