(a polite form of "Where did you get your current copy of OpenOffice?" / "Why didn't you upgrade
earlier?") before proceeding with the actual download from the SourceForge mirrors.

I believe we can help with the survey, for example we might ask our newsletter readers (over
a million) to fill it in. 

We can also use Sourceforge apache OpenOffice placements for that.
