Thanks for your comments! And sorry for the delay in moving this forward. I think it's
now pretty much finalised, so if anyone has any last comments please let me know. The
latest version is at:

This sounds a very worthwhile exercise and subject to comments by D'Arcy and the
staff team I think it's very likely that this could be done association with WMUK. No
doubt the bulk of the work in preparing the survey and analysing the results would be done
by a group of volunteers, with you leading (volunteers in front, as it should be!). Do
you have an idea of what resources you'd like from the charity? Perhaps WMUK could
use its volunteer and member database to broaden the reach of the survey by distributing
it by email?
Thanks! The resources I'm hoping WMUK can provide are:
- Access to survey software to run the survey (e.g., surveymonkey);
- Oversight to make sure that the survey data is kept confidential and deleted after the
results have been compiled;
- Distribution through its volunteer/membership database.
I'll email D'Arcy and Richard to see if this is possible, and to start preparing
the survey to be run.

I had one comment, about audience(s). There are people who attend meetups, and people who
might. There are those who organise them, and again those who might. Some division up of
questions accordingly could be helpful.
There are questions about how many wikimeets people have attended, and I've also added
one about whether they've organised one. I'm not sure that we want to ask each
group different questions; I think this is where cross-correlations between the different
answers might provide useful insights.
