Unfortunately SurveyMonkey sucks and I can't give everyone access to live responses without paying them money. Current results:

- 97 people have answered
- About 67% use Git only (this has been consistent throughout the survey)
- Aabout 20% use Subversion only
- About 13% use Git and Subversion
- No one checked "Other"

As far as contribution levels of the responders:

- 37% are WebKit reviewers
- 25% are WebKit committers
- 25% are WebKit contributors (but presumably not committers or reviewers yet)
- 13% are not WebKit contributors
