I could use some feedback on this task. We have over 130 responses to the recent MediaWiki Users Survey. We have published the data from that survey, but omitted any identifying information. Is that of any value or importance in furthering this task?

The survey definitely helped and it produced "a list".

However, I think this task would like a more comprehensive list. If we can get a substantial number of responses from closed wikis to something like opt in site registration (T76579) then I'll consider this a success.

Perhaps this should be made a tracking task to keep track of the different ways we're trying to collect that information.
