I just threw up a couple of very simple tables, showing # of systems reporting in this month, as well as a break down of release / architecture for those that have reported in ...

John pointed out a bug that I hadn't noticed, mainly because I was
testing single host ... basically, I installed PHP5 on the backend, and
stupidly didn't check to make sure that they *hadn't* gone and changed
all of the DB access functions from 4.x :(

The bug is fixed, and I've tested using three different servers to make
sure its being updated properly ...

For those that have submitted already once, please re-submit, since your
data was added the first time through ...

And, there is now a port "/usr/ports/sysutils/bsdstats" that will
install it in /usr/local/etc/periodic/monthly, thanks to John there too
... no changes to the script itself have been made yet, just a fix on
the backend ...

Will work on adding pciconf support in next ...

Here is a sample (working) port. Un-tar the archive under
ports/sysutils. It installs the script to
${LOCALBASE}/etc/periodic/monthly and prints a message about how to
enable it. Have a look at it, edit all the text entries to make them
your own (in particular I didn't do a real pkg-descr), and submit it
as a PR (I can assist you with that off-list if you'd like).

Perfect, thanks ... I have commit access to ports, so I can commit it
later over the weekend ...

Feature request: the script should output one line of text indicating
success or failure (and to remind people who read their periodic
e-mails that it's actually running).

I am personally terrible at 'human friendly features', especially when
it comes to text ... its why most web pages I design seem
ultra-utilitarian unless I talk someone into writing things nicely ...

IMHO, this whole thing isn't meant for my edification, but to provide
*us*, as a project, with some overall numbers to advocate/market
ourselves better ... *please* feel free to submit any patches to the
script that you (or anyone else) feels needs to be added to improve
things ...

The more ppl involved, the more successful the endeavor will be ...

        I know I may be overachieving a bit in my overall thoughts of this
plan, but why not do something similar for the rest of the BSDs and/or
Linux/Solaris? I find this a good statistical tool for determining how
many desktops run what form of Unix, so better numbers could be derived
for overall Unix driver support.
        Just a thought..
