Bummer.  Can we ensure that data about our current GSoC participants
gets put in SVN somewhere for our own historical reference?

Dunno - that's why we have people who write standards for surveys (a
couple of Members have volunteered in the past to help write questions
like this in a standardized way).

For any 'degree' questions, we need to use a standard agree or satisfied
scale that's used in standard surveys.  That likely means the question
needs to be re-phrased so it fits that kind of scale.
