The survey results were used in several presentations last week at 
ApacheCon, and I remember them being helpful in past conferences too when 
understanding how we're doing. I think we're due an update, so +1

One suggestion I'd make is to review the text of some other foundations / 
tech organisation's surveys, and if we're missing questions they've asked 
or have different incompatible wording, make sure we have that for a 
reason. (Or update ours to match if no reason!). That would help us with 
comparing ourselves to other similar groups, and also would assist outside 
researchers trying to do meta-analysies too.

I'm also happy to help out where I can :)
