Dear all,

We want to be able to focus our engineering efforts on the things that matter most to our users, and in order to do that we need to get some more data about sort of setups our users have and which software they are running on it.

We would like to add a checkbox to the installer, exact wording TBD, but along the lines of "Send diagnostics information to help improve Ubuntu".  This would be checked by default.

I think it has been suggested that a popup asking nicely whether it is ok to send diagnositics, with buttons for yes/no might go down better than a checkbox. I concur with that idea as pre-checked checkboxes do have a bad reputation.
