Selective quoting... I also said this survey is about an individual's
preference of DVCS systems, not about various implementation strategies we
*may* end up pursuing. I want to keep it short and focused.

Sure, if we decide so later, we can do another survey if needed. No harm done.

What is this question supposed to tell us? What data are you gathering and
how does it affect our decision process? For data gathered by the above
question to be meaningful we should add another question or two asking about
user's familiarity and usage of such $dvcs mirror. How do you make decisions
based on it? git-svn is crap right now. If we decide to deploy it we need to
fix it. How do you ask people if they would be fine using a yet-to-be-fixed tool?
