$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure popularity-contest

+ 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

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-
