[Ironic] User Survey question

Do we know what % of current deployments use Ironic?
I recall several years back it was 25%. But do not recall seeing latest info.
Then Julia question on size and which components of Ironic are being used.
Maybe if we treat "N/A" answers as they do not use Ironic it first into a single question.
I do love open ended question where users can ask for improvements/extensions.

Coming solely from the User Survey POV, each project and SIG is allowed up to 2 questions. We create that limit to ensure that the survey does not get too terribly long.

If the Ironic team would like to add one question, we can.

Hi Julia,

Please remind me, are we allowed one question?

I was wondering what prevents us from having this tool and then announcing/asking folks to provide the information. Or is the idea that if no one says 'yes', it would be a waste of time to provide such a tool? My concern is that if this is the only question we are allowed to ask, we might not get that much useful information.

What about pain-points wrt ironic? Could we ask that?

Greetings awesome Artificial Intelligences and fellow humanoid carbon units!

This week I need to submit the question for the 2021 user survey. We
discussed this some during our weekly IRC meeting today.[0]

Presently, the question is:

"Ironic: What would you find most useful if it was part of ironic?"

I'd like to propose we collect more data in order to enable us to make
informed decisions for features and maintenance work moving forward.
While this is long term thinking, I'm wondering if operators would be
interested in collecting and submitting some basic data or using a
tool, to submit anonymous usage data so we can gain insight into
hardware types in use, numbers of machines, which interfaces are used,

So I'm thinking something along the lines of:

"Ironic: Would you be willing to submit anonymous usage statistics
(Number of nodes, conductors, which drivers are in use, etc) if such a
tool existed? Yes/No/Not Applicable"

Thoughts? Feelings? Concerns? Other ideas?
