To clarify, *I* didn’t write “most”, I wrote earlier "My reading of the survey is that the monorepo has a significant lead.” 

So I guess your targeting Chris sentence, but my reading of it above is that it doesn't focus exclusively on the raw survey results, he added to this end 1) "and discussions in forums like the LLVM Dev” and 2) "people *who care*”. That’s subjective obviously, but just to say that the survey is one data source, that the BoF made some people attitude towards monorepo change, and the “binary" nature of the survey does not allow to capture nuances, i.e. how many people consider “I’m in favor of A but I’ll be fine with B” vs “I’m totally against B, it’s has to be A”, which discussions helped to catch.
