Re: pkgstats: contribution was never that easy

What I'm wondering about is that a first skim over the data shows that 100% of the users have pkgstats installed... even with a vibrant community like arch, thats very improbable...

Re: pkgstats: contribution was never that easy

strange; so nobody is using telnet to manually commit the data?

That would be covered by the groups "base" + "base-devel" from my guessing...

Re: pkgstats: contribution was never that easy

I have a dynamic IP address.  So what happens if I run pkgstats today, and then two days from now?  Will my set-up be counted twice?

If this is the case, how would we work to prevent <insert favourite multiple here>-counting?

Re: pkgstats: contribution was never that easy

I like this idea, great! But I think that recognize a single poc would be usefull. You don't have to store IDs or username, you can md5 some unique data, like mac address ok the ethernet card and save it to the server. Something like this:

ifconfig -a | head -n 1 | awk '{print $5}' | md5sum

With this you send minimal amount of data, you do not know who is sending and no ids are stored on the pc, but you can recognize the pc when it sends data.

With something like this you can know that all sent data correspond to a single machine, and you update statistics of that machine when it sends them. I think it would be usefull, hope I helped smile

Total submitters vs. registered users should be interesting...

Nice idea, but I don't think that the MAC Address of my ipsec interface is really unique.

What I find really interesting is that about 70% of x86_64 users have a lib32 setup.

I'll bet at least 2/3 of those packages are dependencies of Flash 10.

Re: pkgstats: contribution was never that easy

25% have Openbox installed. The rumors of Openbox being the arising de facto standard of Arch may be so far fetched.
