Default Bug#643669: ITP: pp-popularity-contest -- PredictProtein popularity contest

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Laszlo Kajan <lkajan@rostlab.org>


* Package name : pp-popularity-contest
Version : 1.0.3
Upstream Author : Laszlo Kajan <lkajan@rostlab.org>
* URL : http://www.rostlab.org/
* License : GPL
Programming Lang: C++
Description : PredictProtein popularity contest

The pp-popularity-contest package sets up a cron job
that periodically submits the developers anonymous statistics on the usage of
Rost Lab prediction methods installed on this system.
.
This information helps to make decisions like which packages
should receive high priority when fixing bugs or receive funding for further
development and support.
This information is also very important when the Rost Lab applies for funding.
.
Without the funding received based on the usage statistics you contribute by
installing this package none of the packages on Debian could have been made
available to you at no cost.
.
Please install this package when it is recommended.

I'm pretty sure that's not true. None of the PredictProtein packages, maybe...

Would data from the normal popularity-contest package be enough for your
usage statistics?

The wording of the package's description leaves some room for optimisation.

Upstream (the group Laszlo works in) thinks "no". I am sponsoring the package
since there is no hidden activity, and the contribution to the statistics is
completely voluntary, even the reminder can be switched off with a mere "touch".
This sounds fair enough to me.

I appreciated the separation of that counting facility into its own package
and anticipate its development into a PP-independent library.

Cheers,

Steffen
