that a hardware limitation or personnel one?
asking because despite the retirement of UDC, it is still
widely used by several corporations (Google, Ericsson,…) to
track Eclipse internal usage, so I’m thinking that there may
be ppl ready to help.
But it sounds a lot like the Usage Data Collector (UDC).
Unfortunately, we didn't collect this sort of information and
the UDC has been shut down.
Any time you "call home", you're going to make somebody angry.
There are always privacy issues to consider. This means that
some sort of UI element is required to allow the user to opt
At this point in time, we do not have the resources to
re-implement the UDC or something like it.

default preferences, the “best” thing to do is to
capture what preferences the users are tweaking using an
automated usage collection system. Then one can produce
a report showing, for instance, how many users prefer
line numbers in the margin. If the stats really do favor
line numbers, then the default setting should be
revisited regardless of history. If the stats show the
opposite, then the reports can be published, which
should partly help to pacify those who incorrectly
assume that their preference is representative of the
+1, that's a good idea.
In any case, such reports should be made public. It shows
users that they have some control on the deliveries. And
their content will be very nice input to the most famous
trolls of code style (tab vs margins, 80 columns...).
Should I open a bug to suggest this "Preference Collector"
