But when we come to think of it, these people started somewhere, one
day, to contribute, and while they all have their own reasons, we
(the people in charge of "marketing") thought that everybody has
the ability to contribute. The question is: how  can we make it
1)interesting 2) accessible 3)easy to understand what the various
tasks are 4)possible to spread the word about it?

Question 2 requires a definition of "contribute", e.g. is a bug
submission contribution? Is helping another user via the mailing list
a contribution?

Users support, yes. 

Q5 answers above, therefore should appear in the survey before q2!

Q11 what is the relevance of knowing users' locations?

Agree with Mr Springer's message.

LO people should simply read the mailing list; every random date,
select a random number of mailing lists threads, read, analyse and
consider whether further action is necessary. You will get much better
information than a biased "survey"

I read Mr Springer's message and we do not want to have a biased survey
at all. One of the reasons we came up with a survey is that  we were
precisely not able to get the big picture by reading mailing lists.
It's important to note that there is no good or bad answer in this
survey, it's about understanding opportunities we could create for

Last but not least the geography might count, yes. You do not see your
contribution potential whether you're in a country that has ubiquitous
broadband or in a country where most people connect to the internet via
phones or for the wealthiest, satellite.
