Thanks for your offer. I think, though, that what we need most is more
people to help brainstorm on how the survey should actually work. I have
many dozen people on the various seul lists willing to take our initial
survey, and from there we can make a second draft before displaying it to
the public.

That said...perhaps the most important thing we need right now is more
ideas on "what end-users want in an OS". There are a couple lists floating
around, but they are by no means complete. Our current project should be to
flesh them out enough that we can base a good survey on them.

I've been busy with other stuff recently, but I will make an effort to put
some attention to the seul-research list this evening.

I invite you to subscribe to the seul-research list (as well as other
seul lists, eg seul-announce) so you can be kept up-to-date on things.
