In order to understand the questions that software engineers would like to ask data scientists about software, the software process, and about software engineering practices, we conducted two surveys: the first survey solicited questions and the second survey ranked a set of questions. Our analysis resulted in a catalog of 145 questions grouped into 12 categories as well as a ranking of the importance of each question. This technical report contains the survey text as well as the complete list of 145 questions with rankings.
