I agree. However, I would view these polls as both a way to inform 
people and a short measure of what the community members think at this 
point. It does hold a little value. I am not sure if we all really 
understand the meaning behind "rolling distro", but the polls still do 
give a little value at this point in time.

If we are going to poll communities, the community leaders should really 
get together and decide on the process and questions so that the 
information collected is valuable. But Ok, this way we still get a 
little data to look at.
