Thanks for summarising the results. As others have written, the level of abstraction is way to high to conclude anything tangible from the results. I think it is necessary and expected from a transparent open source community to publish the raw anonymised data. Also I think that if our sample of responses is a total of 200, that in itself should be a reason to worry and to interpret the results with a grain of salt.

Thanks for setting up this process of feedback. I did take part in the survey. I would like to point out that I found the questions to be very much generic, and it felt like the survey was over before it really began. With that in mind, I don’t think it is a sufficient foundation to decide the future objectives of the community on.
