Subject: RE: Micah´s Matrix in the wiki

Hi Micah,

Thanks for the quick answer and the nice feedback.
My idea was to leave that page static (that reflected your work) and create a new one (dynamic) where I would introduce the new data that I would be obtaining and where tool developers could check and come to me if they wanted to amend it or update with new versions. 

I will add now the disclaimer you mentioned to it.

I also wanted to ask you about the methodology you followed to gather the data, from what I have understood you approached the tool makers with a questionnaire and also you tried the tools yourself. Am I right? Would it be possible to have access to that questionnaire?

Thanks again for sharing your work and time,

Kind regards,
