ROS 2018 Usage Survey

We'd like to get an idea of what versions of ROS people are using and how long they want those versions supported. If you could fill out this short survey, that would help us to make decisions on where we should focus our efforts for ROS1. We'll leave the survey open for 2 weeks, until April 4, 2018, and post the results shortly after that.

Follow ups will be on the ROS Discourse thread
