 GNOME DVCS Survey Results

In December I ran a distributed version control system survey for GNOME. From the survey opening page:
Thank you for taking the GNOME DVCS Survey. This survey is run on behalf of the GNOME Foundation board of directors, release team, and sysadmin team. The GNOME project is planning a possible move from SVN to a distributed version control system in 2009. The contenders for the system to use are bzr, git, and hg. The aim of the survey is to help us better understand familiarity and preferences of our active contributor base regarding the future version control system for GNOME. The survey results will be informational and will be sent to foundation-list and desktop-devel-list upon completion.
GNOME contributors with an SVN account who had an SSH key installed on their account were invited to fill in the survey. A total of 1083 account holders were invited, and 579 filled in the survey. The survey results are now available to the public here. Elijah did an initial analysis of the data. His analysis also includes the survey questions and answers. Find it here. If you analyze the results, please leave a comment on this post linking to your analysis.

Awesome work dude!
 
How did you contact people? I have an SVN account and did not receive a call to participate...
 
We contacted all SVN account holders who had an SSH key installed. And contacted them at the email address we had on file (what else?). That is, sending mail to username@svn.gnome.org.
 
Ah, I suppose the email comes from the originally submitted id_dsa.pub ... which in my case is some address I'm not on any more :/
 
Marko. There's an email for each committer kept on file. Please mail accounts@gnome.org to update yours.
 
I'll do that, thanks for telling me how :)
