Hi Fotis,

Good job, thank you!

1) Yes, I think we can exclude that question. It is too general. No need to
wait till next sync-up IMO.

2) Well, I changed from
"Are you willing to* make* architectural changes to your infrastructure..."
to "Are you willing to *consider making* architectural changes to your
to address this concern of "unknown changes".
I think that having "Maybe" (which I understand as "It depends") makes this
question a bit redundant because I bet that 90% people will answer "maybe"
The goal of this question is to build awareness that we will bring some
issues and we need very general and preliminary acknowledge that they are
going to at least consider to use our findings.
But if you think that this question can be more harmful than beneficial
then we can exclude them as well (as I said, I'm pretty new in Forum).

3) I'm considering to make one change in form: I think that most of
questions should be marked as "required". How do you think?
