Many large installations are very irritated about the registration

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
It should and should always be left up to the individual's discretion
I also agree, we should work on a better way to implement it in large
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?
 e.g.: http://popcon.debian.org/ and http://lwn.net/Articles/75753/
