Open source motivation survey


Please fill this Perl community motivation survey.

It's short and shouldn't take more than 2-3 minutes of your time.
If you ever shared your software, commited a patch, reported a bug or wrote a blog post on Perl, your opinion matters.

The reasoning behind this survey:
For the Play Perl project to succeed, I need to figure out if there's a demand for this product, and which features will be more important. I've already spent a considerable amount of time thinking about it, and I'll share my ideas about why I'm doing what I'm doing after the survey will be over.

Of course I'm also going to share the aggregated results of this survey for everyone to meditate on.

By the way, Wufoo doesn't allow free accounts for users from my country, so I spent $15 on it. I guess I'm motivated enough :)
So I hope we'll get enough answers, and PLZ RT.

Play Perl project

I want to launch a new website for the Perl community.
I'd say it's a social network, but the main purpose and the main measure of its success is getting stuff done.
I'd say it's a todo-list, but I want the list of tasks to be public and people-oriented, not project-oriented.
Oh, and it's also going to be gamified.

It's not ready yet. I have some code and a pretty consistent development pace, and I think it's a doable project, and I think I need co-developers and early adopters to succeed.

But first, a bit of the backstory...
