Um, from the landing page of that URL I get:

===
We're inviting you to take part based on having visited an open source project 
on GitHub or indicating interest in an open source project hosted elsewhere. 
This survey is open to anyone who uses, contributes to, or thinks about open 
source software, but we are sampling carefully in order to ensure that the 
data is unbiased, so please do not tweet or otherwise share this link.
===

So unless the kde-community mailing list is really smart in re-writing the 
link, *or* you've got some kind of agreement with GitHub that this is a 
possibly biased, not-carefully-sampled, community survey, I don't think this 
is going to work out well.

Please advise.
