I think it would be good to have a form/survey of some sort that can get feedback from users such as: who they are, how they use LLVM/contributions/etc,  if they are pro-github move, how it impacts them, etc. People could then submit their feedback in an organized way and we could get a better idea of how the community feels on the topic.
> 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?

Yes that's what I meant about asking for information about how they use LLVM and contributions. It would not be an anonymous survey. I just was thinking it would be better to have an organized way of getting votes/opinions without all the emails and discussion. I think discussion is important of course but it can be hard to follow everything and for some to chime in.

Anyways, just an idea.
