This package in Ubuntu is not properly maintained for many years.
Probably it should be deleted at all.

** Description changed:

  Since the removal of the 'opt-in' or was it an 'opt-out' dialog in older
  versions of the Ubuntu(d-i) installer, I have _manually_ enabled the
  popcon utility via:
  
  $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure popularity-contest
  
- I notice that the website:  popcon.ubuntu.com seems to be mostly
+ I notice that the website: https://popcon.ubuntu.com/ seems to be mostly
  unmaintained or perhaps abandoned(!?).
  
  Is this utility really helpful to the Ubuntu Dev's? Should I continue to
  _manually_ enable it after each install, as I have for over 5+ years?
  
  If not, can it be removed from the 'ubuntu-standard' package depends?
  
  Please let me know if this is still a useful item to keep on my post-
  install checklist.
  
  Thank you!
