I could add a name option to the survey but this is such a hot-button topic
that might be unwise, and the survey is quite long.
I can always create a separate survey "BayPIGgies name poll" at no extra 
With just your 2 questions.
A 2-question poll would probably get higher response rate, too.

>1.  Would you like to change the name?
>2.  Please rate each name:
>     BayPython
>     BayPyUG
>     Silicon Valley Python Interest Group
>     SFBayPython
>Are these all that have been suggested so far?  Can anyone think of

SVPy was suggested.

>Should we add: BayPIG
Probably no point.

>Should we take more time to think about the name?  Stephen, is there a
>reason why we are in a hurry to do the survey?

Yes. I want to get it live by 4/9 and get some initial feedback by 4/13 
where I want to encourage people and explain what the intent of running it 
Also will have paper copies for people who don't want to fill it out online 
or email.
SurveyMonkey charges me a $20 monthly fee and I want it complete by 4/30
so I can tabulate by 5/7 for the meeting. So there are multiple constraints.

>majority.  Does that sound right?

-> Deirdre, Aahz, whatever the charter says
