No need for a long answer - just explain what the purpose of the survey is,

To see what committers think about the various DVCSs and if one happens to be disliked by a majority of developer when compared to svn as a baseline.

and why it isn't as biasad as it appears to be. A process where you're actively discouraging people with a certain opinion from getting involved isn't much of a process.

I just wanted some data, nothing more. This was not meant to spark a debate else this would have occurred over at python-dev. I just wanted to know what people thought in order to potentially eliminate a DVCS from the running to make my life easier in writing the PEP. Next time I will flat-out write "DO NOT TAKE THIS SURVEY SERIOUSLY" and still hope people take the time to fill it out.

I had a long reply all written out, but instead I decided to discard it so as to not continue to drag this discussion out. Why? The DVCS PEP is not even finished yet!

Can you guys please let me finish the PEP before you start worrying about whether we are going to switch? At least give me the chance to make a decision on whether I think it is reasonable to switch and what to switch to. And then we can have a reasonable conversation where I update the PEP to address any questions that come up.
