Re: [RFC] Questions for Git User's Survey 2010
]] Jakub Narebski
My comments are inline,
| 19. In your opinion, which areas in Git need improvement?
| Please state your preference.
| Columns: don't need / a little / some / much
| + user-interface
| + documentation
| + performance
| + more features
| + tools (e.g. GUI)
| + localization (translation)
| + community (mailing list)
| + community (IRC)
Adding a «don't know/don't care» option here might be useful, since
somebody might not be using the mailing lists and so doesn't know or
care if they need improvement.
| Changes in Git (since year ago, or since you started using it)
| 20. Did you participate in previous Git User's Surveys?
| (multiple choice)
| + in 2006
| + in 2007
| + in 2008
| + in 2009
| + none of the above (this is my first Git User's Survey)
Add a «I don't remember, but I've participated in the past»?
| 25. What channel(s) do you use to request help about git?
| (multiple choice, with other)
| + git mailing list (email@example.com)
| + msysGit mailing list / Google Group
| + "Git for Human Beings" Google Group
| + IRC (#git)
| + IRC (other git/SCM related, e.g. #github)
Perhaps add «IRC (other)» too?
| + request in blog post or on wiki
| + asking git guru/colleague
| + project mailing list, or IRC, or forum
| + Twitter or other microblogging platform
| + instant messaging (IM) like XMPP/Jabber
XMPP/Jabber can be both one-on-one and chat rooms, even if MUCs aren't
very much used (yet), I don't know if you care about this.
Thanks for doing this survey, I've found reading the results interesting
in the past and hope to do so this time around as well.
