Thanks for the update, Mani.

Are we going to start running the equivalent surveys on the sister
projects?  We have a fair bit of data about Wikipedia already,
comparative data from all projects would be useful.  Most of the
questions would not change.

In addition to the time-limited study that's being conducted, is it
possible to have a simplified version of this survey running
continuously in the background - say for 1 in 100,000 visitors,
year-round?  That sort of data stream could be very useful as an
addition to our current monthly reports.
