Re: thoughts on LWN "how many Fedora users are there"

Yes, that's why I said 'add a repository' above.  If you have
a few reliable machines that you control, don't use any others
as mirrors.  It shouldn't be a big load to serve one file
that changes once a month - and it gives the users an easy
way to opt out if they feel that being counted violates
their privacy.  My personal feeling is that as long as everyone
knows the result it is not an issue for me.  I might have a
problem with it if some other group collected my information
and withheld it from everyone else.

I dont see the advantage of using a specific repository instead of just getting the logs from the mirrors on the package update hits they get. They already are syncing gigabytes of package updates.
