Re: [] SD Times Eclipse Survey

Hi Ian,

I'm more than a little confused about questions 19a, 19b, and 19c (I assume that "13c" is a typo, since there's already a separate question 13).

QUESTION 19a: Which Eclipse "bits" are currently used by your organization and which do you expect will be used within the next year?
QUESTION 19b: Which Eclipse "bits" do you expect to use by your organization and which do you expect will be used within the next 12 months?
QUESTION 13c: Which Eclipse "bits" are currently used OR do you expect will be used by your organization within the next year?

I kind of expected to see separate results for each part of each of these questions.  For example, in a, "which bits are currentl used by your organization" and "which bits do you expect will be used within the next year", but that's not the case.  

As far as I can see, a and c differ only in the conjunction used to join the two parts ("and" in a vs. "OR" in c).  
given that separate results aren't given for the two parts of each question in a,
at suggests that it should be read as "which bits are currently in use and will still be in use
