On the rare occasions that I've looked, I've found them next to useless.
More than half of the links on the wikis seem to be about how to use the
wiki, with very little information on what the wiki is supposed to be
about.  It sounds like a classic case of committee administration -
loads of paper work, but no actual work.

On the face of it, I don't have a problem with the post-install having
something that allowed for a response, so long as it's done sensibly.

At that stage, the internet may not be accessible, so e-mailing some
response mightn't be viable.  Likewise for HTTP, or other protocols.

And I know I've been extremely annoyed by pop-ups after an installation
on Window that nag me about registering.  It'd have to be some easily,
and completely ignorable, further action by the user to submit
information.  e.g. That default homepage in your web browser, that has
the Red Hat / Fedora release notes could have a link to a survey webpage
near the top.

(Currently testing FC5, but still running FC4, if that's important.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
