This seems problematic. In fact, it makes some of the survey questions
unanswerable, ie:

    "What will be your one-time cost to moving to Git/GitHub?"

The one time cost of the mono-repo proposal is drastically different
than that of the multi-repo.

    "How would moving to Git/GitHub impact your usage of LLVM in the
     long term?"

I already use git, but depending on how things are organized in the new
world this may completely change how I work with LLVM.
