Dear Designers,

my name is Antonino Provenzano and I am student of Media & Computer Science at
the University of Kaiserslautern in Zweibrücken. This semester I am writing
a paper. For this paper, I would like to interview three Designers, who
work on LibreOffice. Why you? Because your opinion is important for me too.
Furthermore, I would like know, more about your knowledge and experience.

*What I want to achieve?*

I want to unterstand how an open source project like LiebreOffice is
organized. The main focus is on the communication between designer and
developer. I want to figure out how the cooperation between these both
areas works. Furthermore, I would like to know your opinion about Open
Source and Usability. Which methods are being used in LibreOffice to
improve the GUI and why?

*The personal reason, why I do this:*

I love the idea of Open Source. I am involved in the Unix Group at the
University of Kaiserslautern in Zweibrücken and in the leisure, I work a
lot with Open Source software.

*Does the survey take?*

15-20 Minutes.

*My questions are:*

- What is your motivation for working on LibreOffice?

- How many hours per week do you work on LibreOffice?

- Why do you choose LibreOffice and not another Open Source project?

- Did you work on other Open Source projects before?

- Are there any differences between LibreOffice and the other project?

- How many years of design experience do you have?

- How is the communication with the developers?

- How handle developer criticism/proposals?

- How long do the developers need to answer you?

- Which usability evaluation methods are used in LibreOffice?

- What is your opinion on Open Source Software and Usability?

- Does the LibreOffice need more volunteers?

- Which proposals can you give a person who newly starts in the LibreOffice
project as a designer?

- If you had one wish to improve LibreOffice, what would it be?

*Data protection:*

technical and organizational measures a privacy protection compliance use
of personalized data is ensured. Answering of the questions is done
