Survey - Draft

CategoryStale

NB. UNTIL THE noform PATCH LISTED ON ComponentisingForceWikiWord IS IMPLEMENTED ON TWIKI.ORG, answers to these questions must be submitted separately

  • Feel free to both add questions and to answer the existing ones. Please do not change any question that already has respondants, instead make a case under the question about why you think it needs changing.

Personally I don't feel that this is a useful survey. Aside from being way too clunky to respond to, I really don't think it asks useful or answerable questions. FWIW I'd encourage everybody to boycott this survey as it stands.

If you want to identify new contributors, I'd far rather you asked just three questions:

  1. Are you a potential contributor, or do you know anyone who may be?
  2. What skills do you/they have that may benefit the project?
  3. Why should we consider you/them as a contributor?

If we are going to have a survey, I'd far rather we had a survey of users to try and establish demographics of the user community.

  1. I agree a user survey is invaluable. Perhaps some other readers would like to contribute candidate questions towards it?
  2. I'm inviting refinement, but why don't think it worth asking people whether there are things that stand in their way?

It's the questions.

  • "Do you feel you have the skills to help" is not useful. How would they know if they have the skills? What are the main skills we are looking for?
  • "Is TWiki well architected" and the related questions - there are very people active in TWiki who's opinion I would really listen to on this question.
  • "Does your emplyer sanction", "do you have time" etc are all too vague and dependent on shifting business conditions to be reliable.
I would like to think that if things stand in people's way they will actively raise them (see PostCairoDevelopmentModel). If they don't have the energy to stand up and be counted in that way, I'm not sure I want them as a contributor!

Finally, given the response to calls for help during the run-up to the Cairo release, I'm not expecting more than a couple of responses to this, which doesn't need a survey.
