Re: More diagnostics data from desktop

"Send diagnostics information to help improve Ubuntu" sounds like
you're continuously reporting things, but your proposal looks more
like a single "installation ping" or something.
I guess the apport and popcon reports would be continuous though?

Yes, installation data would be one shot, but popcon and apport would be recurring.  We need to work on the exact wording to make this clear.

If you do this you should really make sure everything has http proxy
(set in user session only?) support, so you can pick up some extra
corporate users.
Sending it from the user session fits well with the privacy settings.

Noted, thanks for the advice.
Sounds reasonable otherwise. Are trackpads enought trouble to collect data on?

Interesting point, we will look in to this some more and update the list with our findings.
