That's impossible.

Those are only technical sites. I think the results are going to be
biased whatever you do.

I like this one.

This one too.

I don't see the relevance of asking this. Furthermore the question is
suggestive. Seems more to prove a point than anything else.

This should be asked earlier.

This is vague. Current as in GNOME 3.2 / 3.0, or current as in the
version that they are using. Furthermore, you don't know if they upgrade
each year.

With what purpose is this asked? No support is given on GNOME Bugzilla.
Only minimal on gnome-list.

Suggest adding translations as well.

How will you handle all the various comments you'll get? Git received
9000 answers.. who is going to read them all and summarize?

Things I'd like to know:
 - Multiple choice options to understand the responders technical
   skills. So if they've submitted a patch, contributed code somewhere,
   paid to write software, maintain some open source code, etc.
   That is IMO a nicer way to understand their skills can someone to
   rate themselves.
 - If they use KDE/XFCE/something
 - other things to later on be able to determine if the survey is biased
   in some way. Don't have concrete ideas atm.
