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. With these statistics, we would be better equipped to target sectors where there is little use or sectors where we could improve the suite to better serve groups.

In my view, the registrations process for LibO is quite an important tool.

It should and should always be left up to the individual's discretion to register.

I also agree, we should work on a better way to implement it in large installations.


Considering Marc's perspective, I think that it is fine to have a sense of who the user-base is, where they are from (regional, not specific granularity!!), the purpose for which they use the software (home/ work/ SOHO), and what component they use/ like the most (& why - i.e. feedback). The focus is on the software, the use and the context of its usage, and could be a user opt-in.

Is it feasible to adopt something akin to the Debian popularity contest and apply that to the LibO installation process?[1]
