I just realized that mentioning the specific project destroys anonymity for 
smaller projects.

So this is what I've done now:
1. Reduced the options for the question "I consider myself as..." to
...an interested user of KDE software
...a (currently or formerly) active KDE contributor
...neither of the above

2. Added a new question "When was your most recent contribution (code, 
translation, design, community, promo, ...) to one of KDE's projects?" for 
those who indicated they are a currently or former contributor with the 
( ) this month
( ) during the last six months
( ) during the last twelve months
( ) more than a year ago
( ) more than five years ago 

3. Added another question for the contributors "Which category or categories 
of projects have you contributed to most recently?", multi-select, with the 
[ ] Plasma
[ ] Applications
[ ] Frameworks
[ ] Meta (sysadmin, web)

I have not mentioned promo, vdg or community/support separately because their 
work is usually related to one of the project categories. Am I missing other 
functions which contribute to KDE's producs but do not relate to any of the 
categories above?
