I wonder if we should also add

   * through a watched blog (such as GitHub Blog)
   * announcement section in news site (such as LWN.net)

Are there any other common channels that you (the people) watch for

The last would be

   * other, please specify

On Survs.com it would require an additional question with free-form
answer, I think.

Right.

Nb. I wonder if this question should not replace the one about
how you heard about the survey (at least if there would be too many
questions).  But I'll have to see how many questions we have now.

Thanks for suggestions,
