Reviving the matplotlib survey

Last year, Paul wrote a survey for matplotlib so we could collect
data on which versions of dependencies are being used, as well as to
collect other data.

You can see it here:[ survey](https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHpQS25pcTZIRWdqX0pNckNSU01sMHc6MQ)

We dropped the ball on actually advertising this survey and getting

some results, but I agree that we should do this. Looking at it
now, it’s a little out of date in places (version of Python
available, we should add Anaconda as options, etc.), but
fundamentally I still think is very good.

Paul: Can you give me edit permissions so I can update it?

Everyone else: Are there any other changes you think we should make

before we put this out?

I think this, given enough responses, could be very helpful in

determining our dependencies going forward, in addition to what I’m
proposing in issue
https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/2191.

Cheers,

Mike

We also started preparing a second user survey for IPython, but we haven't
yet launched it. I think our questions are broadly similar to yours, but if
you're interested, you can see our planned survey here:

I would suggest clarifying the “how do you use matplotlib” question, or perhaps refocusing it.

Cheers!
