I agree. There are very few questions, and in the few, I don't
understand some (one in particular has, I think, broken English; or
maybe I am broken. :p), and the others are vague (or rather too
accurate, like how many projects did I participated to? How do I
remember this? Do single patches sent over a mailing list/bug tracker
and forgotten count or does she mean lasting active participation
only? etc.) or hard to answer in just a few words (if we consider the
size of the entry answer, the author apparently don't want long
answers). In any case, I really wonder what kind of thesis can really
emerge from answers to this questionnaries.
By the way I also received this directly on my email. And I also
recommended to post this to the mailing list (it has been sent to the
ml afterwards, if not mistaken).

I recall one person saying in a recent post, possibly on the Gimp
users list, that he contributed code because he liked to code, he
wanted to make something in particular about Gimp work better, and he
did it for his own personal satisfaction. That was exactly my own
reasons for working on the lcms.c plugin.

Do the questionaires connect with real motivations? Or some of the
real, core motivations just plain missing from the forms? Why do you
all really do it (other than possibly sainthood or insanity of

core motivations anymore. hmpf!
