I kind of have to agree with Joe based on his points. 

I do however think that it's fine for SB to create the survey, but perhaps it's best administered
wearing Apache hats.

Hi Giles, 

So, I'm not really comfy with ShapeBlue (or Citrix, or any commercial
entity) collecting contact info for the community. 

On to the survey itself. I'd like to see more questions about what the
users want from CloudStack, their thoughts on release cycle, what they
care about most (does the fact it's ASL 2.0 matter? that it's an open
community? that it's free?)

Question 6:

xen should be Xen, Vmware should be VMware. 

Question 7: 

"What version of CloudStack do you run" 

CCP is not a version of CloudStack, technically. It's a product based on
CloudStack. It's an important distinction, and we don't want a community
survey putting the words in people's heads that CCP is "a version of

Question 8:

"Have you had any major issues with CloudStack? Please detail"

What, we're assuming everybody *has* had major issues? ;-)

I'd ask something about their level of success with CloudStack, and
*then* ask for details. 

We should have a question about community support, I think. (e.g., "Have
you sought support via the community? If so, how was your experience?") 

We might want to narrow 9 down a bit as well. We probably have some
known features that are floating around as wish items in Jira that may
not be in progress. We might want to pick some, and again have a
free-form text for the folks who want to give more detailed answers. 

Keeping this to one page is probably all for the good, much higher
chance of completion.
