Hey all,

The foundation sent me a copy of 2018 user survey responses to the 
following question about Nova:

"How important is it to be able to customize Nova in your deployment, 
e.g. classload your own managers/drivers, use hooks, plug in API 
extensions, etc?"

Note: this question populates for any user who indicates they are in 
production or testing with the Nova project. It is not a required 
question, so these responses do not necessarily include every user.

There were a total of 373 responses.

The number of responses per multiple choice answer were:

- "Not important; I use pretty much stock Nova with maybe some small 
patches or bug fixes that aren't upstream.": 173 (46.4%)

- "Somewhat important; I have some custom scheduler filters and other 
small patches but nothing major.": 144 (38.6%)

- "Very important; my Nova deployment is heavily customized and 
hooks/plugins/custom APIs are a major part of my operation.": 56 (15.0%)

And I made a google sheets chart out of the responses which you can view
