Reminder End of Survey: Relevance of Configuration Systems in Free and Open Source Software

I would like to gently remind anyone interested that the survey will be closed on 18.07.2016.
As stated in the previous mailing we are interested in the experience and opinion of people 
involved in both FLOSS and configuration systems. This includes developers who use or have used
configuration related artefacts in their contributions. e.g. also accessing and using environment
variables for configuration.

As concern of my credibility where raised on two mailing lists I would like to be clearer in this regard.

For concerns regarding using a gmail address: I barely use my university email, only when explicitly needed.
Why? Because it is a temporary mail address. Once I finished my studies it will be deactivated. Also I use my
gmail address for contributions. If you still have any concerns feel free to contact me at e1026292 at tuwien ac at 
or check my github profile

As for concerns regarding the Elektra Initiative itself you can see its members at
In addition you can see offered thesis at

We also hold regular meetings. If you are living near Vienna and are interested in the topic of configuration
systems in FLOSS, feel free to contact us to be added to the mailing list.

best regards,
Gabriel Rauter
