This task is now stalled until the situation with the backfill loss is resolved. As of now, I have decided to swap the position with a research scientist position to be able to finish T228356 by hiring the second person. This task will be picked up again once the backfill is restored.

@Milimetric @mforns I created a survey and added you both as collaborators. You can make changes in it directly. One place that I need help with is in the introduction to the survey. We need to make it much clearer and exciting there for people to know what data we're talking about. :)
