My point is, if you ask people to do things for you you need to give them a
reason of why they should help you. E.g. if you have a survey you might
say that a randomly selected participant will win a 25 Euro voucher from
Amazon. Now I don't ask you to buy things from Anazon but to think about
why people should help you.

One of the reason (non monetary) is to create a "database" that will be
available to the community. A good example is the "terminal-profile"[1]
initiative started by Kevin. He created a script (forkable) to query the
terminal profile, there are clear instructions how to use it and it
automatically uploads the data to a database. The database is publicly
accessible and the whole content can be downloaded.

Do you notice the difference? With Kevin's approach the whole community will
benefit, with your request only you will benefit.

Well, time will tell and I am happy to correct myself in case you make any
contribution (detailed bug report, work in the wiki, bug fixes in the source).
