Some already answer, but they were classified as Koha -- Independent
even when they are hosted by us (and not just us installing and/or
supporting their server).

The big problem I have with that survey is that libraries give
Marshall Breeding their data, but the survey results are not given
back under any free and open source software terms.  It seems rather
unjust to ask librarians to spend their time on something unequal
like that, doesn't it?

Hope that explains,
