	development promises huge increases in effectivity and efficiency.
	Yet, specific problems need to be overcome: Communication between
	partners is difficult and awareness about the knowledge available
	at different locations is impaired. Even motivated developers are
	often reluctant to share experiences, because they do not know where
	and how to submit them as well as if they are allowed to share sensitive
	information or intellectual property. If they submit, their experiences
	are often presented in a way not useful for others and cannot be
	easily refined into best practices. In this paper we identify barriers
	of knowledge sharing in a literature review and discuss how dedicated
	tool support and automated heuristic critiques can mitigate such
	problems by offering the following features and qualities: guidance
	of project participants in creating experiences that will more likely
	be helpful, positive influence of their motivation to share, and
	easily accessible and integrated into a trustworthy experience engineering
	processes. Preliminary evaluation with a prototype shows that this
	concept can increase willingness to submit experience as well as
	their quality.}
