While I sympathize, I wonder if a survey is appropriate.  It gives equal
weight to all voices but not all voices are equally impacted by the
pros/cons.  I am in favor of a github/lab/etc transition but I've only
lurked on the list and built/tested a couple of releases for older
platforms.  I would think opinions of those who have lots of work with
commits/reviews/content should probably be weighed heavier than mine.
Perhaps the survey could ask for a voluntary high/medium/low activity level
for normalizing the votes?
