The Reuse DSWG is conducting a survey of software reuse practices.  They
invite your participation in the survey.  For more information, please see

The NASA Earth Science Data Systems Software Reuse Working Group is 
conducting a software reuse survey 
(http://softwarereuse.nasa.gov/survey) to (1) learn about the Earth 
science community's needs for reusable software components (and other 
software development artifacts), (2) identify software artifacts that 
are already being reused within the community, and (3) identify existing 
patterns of software reuse.

Your name has been selected because of your association with that 
community. Your participation in this survey is appreciated as it will 
help us to better understand the reuse needs of the Earth science 
community and to propose solutions that can best fit those needs. Such 
solutions will enable members of the community to more easily share, 
publish and locate reusable components of interest. By facilitating 
reuse within the Earth science community, the working group is seeking 
to help you reduce system development costs, gain greater visibility for 
your work within the community, and more efficiently share resources 
across projects.

On average, the survey takes about 20 minutes to complete. In addition 
to submitting your own response, it would be valuable to the reuse 
working group if you can also forward the survey to other members of 
your development team who are involved in system architecture and/or 
influence decisions on selection of system components.

The information collected will only be used by the reuse working group 
for the purposes described above. Individual responses will not be 
distributed to other entities without prior approval from respondents. 
Results will only be published in aggregate form and will be made 
available at http://softwarereuse.nasa.gov/

The NASA Earth Science Data Systems Software Reuse Working Group is 
chartered to address technical issues required to enable and facilitate 
reuse of software assets within the Earth science community. More 
information about the activities of the working group can be found at
