cool, I think many people quit following those threads at this time

Yes it is hard indeed. Both creating the survey, and reaching people.

To make it better, maybe we can point some people that are able to reach
"sub communities"

For instance, I could be a "plone representative" and help on the survey
a Plone point of view, since I know how we build and distribute Plone, Zope
apps, on the top of
distutils, etc..  on Linux, windows, etc..

Then I can help spreading the survey in the Plone community.
But I am certainly not able to make sure the questions fit from, let's say..
a Twisted or a Django point of view.. or even an Ubuntu one..

So maybe we could create a working group that gathers those people, and try
to see
if we can come up with a global survey, that would be a base for Phillip Eby
and al
to work on a global solution.
