Something like:

XX. How do you hear about git related news (such as new releases and
community events)?
    (multiple choice or single choice?)
 * I wasn't aware there was any news
 * I don't read any news, but I'm aware of it
 * through news aggregation sites (such as reddit or hacker news)
 * from a newsletter (such as Git Rev News)
 * from a mailing list (such as the git developer or the git for windows list)
 * other

It would be good to allow a list of specific resources to be written
to capture things we don't know about, and specific instances of the
categories above, eg:
"hacker news, git mailing list, git rev news"

Agreed, the intent behind the question is to work out what are the
effective communication channels so that they can be used more

Exactly, looks great.
