How do we do a better job getting an accurate picture of install media
usage patterns?  To be honest I don't have a good idea on how to trend
completely sneakernet activity..even as a historic relative
measurement against itself. If the resulting installs never touch a
network for updates, I don't have a way to see them at all.  If you
have ideas I'm all ears.

Matt's attempt at trending it is just a starting point. We could do
more, and I'm willing to help build up trendable metrics from the
logs.  But we need to agree that the metrics will help us make
decisions as to how to support niche media.   Is there a need to
define a concept of secondary or legacy media for niche media?  I
don't have a problem keeping niche media in production (if there's
room for it in our infrastructure), but I'd like to see a process that
empowered the users and supporters of the media target to take more
responsibility for it during releases inside the "Fedora" process.
