IMHO we should remove the *registration* completely. We are not after
marketing addresses and I don't see a benefit in LibO requiring (or even
inviting) users to register.


From a marketing point of view, not knowing how or from where people
are using LibO is working in the dark. LibO is such an essential piece
of software, we need to know at the very least where it is being used.

I am happy to see it gone. I know it is nice to know who uses the
software, but statistics collected that way are skewed because large
corporations do a silent install and many people (most?) click on "don't
register". And amongst people who download LibreOffice, we do not know
who really uses it and who downloaded it to give it a 2-minute trial. In
other words, statistics are useless.

Bonjour Michel:

A distro that does not collect data by some shape or form is one that drives blindly. We cannot market LibO effectively without doing some kind of data collecting otherwise we will never know how many people are using it and most importantly from where. We will also not have an opportunity to invite new members into the community and risk stagnation. New blood in an organisation always add vibrancy and this is where new and fresh ideas come from.

I for one, would like to see some form of registration be part of the signing up process.
