Is the audience different?|
Perhaps the nature of the questions--being far more technical and
directly related to the user's day-to-day concerns--might encourage
more active participation...

But I don’t think we need to put anything in the IDE. We just
need a web page and some buzz around it, like a HackerNews
mention or Slashdot article, and of course a bunch of tweets and
other social media. Anything in the IDE will lead to our first
survey: “Do the survey notices bother you?” :).
Creating buzz around a survey is not something easy. See the
Eclipse Community Survey: there is much buzz around it, and it
gets about 1000 answers every year, mostly from Eclipse
contributors. Compared to the 3000000 downloads of Eclipse 4.3.1,
it's probably not very representative.
Also, if we want continuous answers to the continuous flow of new
questions, we must think about having users returning often on
this poll mechanism. That's why I thought of integrating it in
ide-dev mailing list
