In progress until end of 2013!
To start off the 2013 git-annex user survey, let's see how many users
git annex commands at the command line, and how many use the
assistant (and its webapp).
I'm curious to see how popular direct mode is versus indirect mode.

git-annex runs on many operating systems: Linux, OS X, BSDs, Android, and Windows. However, some ports are further along than others.
If there's a device on which you cannot use git-annex today, because the port to an OS is missing or incomplete, please pick it. Please don't vote for an OS where you already successfully use git-annex.

How many git-annex repositories do you have? This can be different clones of the same repository on different machines and drives, and/or completely separate git repositories.
Total votes: 301
How much data do you have stored in git-annex?
The way to get this value is to run
git annex status (or
git annex info
if you have git-annex version 5 already), and look for the line
that says "size of annexed files in working tree" or "known annex size".
If you've got multiple repositories that each contain different files (not git clones), you can run it in each and add them up.

If a problem is preventing you from using git-annex, or the git-annex assistant, please indicate it here.
If you're currently using git-annex, you can instead answer on behalf of less technically adept friends or family, and identify a problem blocking them from using the git-annex assistant.

(Note that missing ports covers ports to Windows etc, so don't add them here.)
