I gave a link to this thread http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=175930 a couple of days ago, where I asked now many people were using which question types. I've had a pretty stunning response so far, with data on over 50 million questions already. See https://spreadsheets.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?hl=en_GB&hl=en_GB&key=0AvW3H1TnOxK-dEROU2dVQ2lkWDU3SlEzaXJqU2lSRUE&single=true&gid=0&output=html. Kudos to Adrianne Boyd for making the most popular third-party question type (ddmatch).
Now, I had an ulteriour motive for doing this. It is going to be very hard to make the randomsamatch question type work with the new question engine in Moodle 2.1, and so I would like to remove that question type from the standard release, and put it in contrib (and it would not be upgraded to be compatible with Moodle 2.1 unless someone volunteers, or I start feeling very generous.)
It seems that very few people are using this question type, so this won't cause problems for too many people, but if it would cause a problem for you, please make your case here.
