"Me too". But the issue of GDPR was mentioned earlier in the thread but seems to have fallen on deaf ears. If you are collecting this kind of data in the EU (and as far as I can tell telemetry data does get swept up into it indirectly if not directly) then opt-in isn't just advisable but legally enforceable. Short of automatically ticking the opt-in box depending on location (and how well can you know the location without a network connection?), and potentially creating a documentation headache because different people will see different things, and certainly skewing the results, then surely the GDPR closes this part of the debate down? Going further: When the GDPR takes effect, will Ubuntu even be compliant as it stands? Explicit and clearly defined consent on bug reports, for example. If someone has looked into this and determined that Ubuntu isn't affected then I (and other EU) users would love to know more! -- Mark Rogers // More Solutions Ltd (Peterborough Office) // 0844 251 1450 Registered in England (0456 0902) 21 Drakes Mews, Milton Keynes, MK8 0ER -- ubuntu-devel mailing list email@example.com Modify settings or unsubscribe at: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-devel
