Re: [m2e-users] m2e usage stats collection

I need to know number of active m2e installations, including version of
m2e, version of eclipse and version java used by the installation. To
the best of my knowledge, none of existing facilities can
provide me this data.

My preferred solution is to have active installation count implemented
at eclipse platform level, enabled by default with a way to disable it.
This is what already happens with p2 download stats, so I think it is
within realm of possibilities. Failing that, I plan to work Eclipse
Foundation to find least intrusive way to collect the data I need. I
will update bug 416371 as I learn more about this.

Just out of curiosity, what is it you really want to know?

If it is a matter of not doing extra work, I would personally be fine with
m2e being updated for the latest released version of Eclipse only, and
stopping for that version when a new Eclipse comes out.  Backporting newer
m2e versions to older versions of Eclipse could then be a "this you need to
pay for thing".

Personally I do not like any "please let us collect information" dialogue,
and would really appreciate if this kind of thing was avoided.  Isn't there
a way to collect the desired information from the marketplace?

Subject: [m2e-users] m2e usage stats collection

Just a heads up. I plan to enable m2e usage statistics reporting and
collection starting with 1.5/Luna M2 and will backport it to 1.4/Kepler
SR2 if everything goes well.

I've opened bug 416371 [1] to track this work. I listed data I plan to
collect and provided links to proposed implementation in the bug.

I still need to figure out where to run statistics collection server.
Ideally, I'd like to see it running somewhere at infrastructure
and will contact webmaster to see if this is something they will be able to
accommodate. Failing that, I have tentative agreement from Jason to run the
server at his infrastructure.

Hopefully this will provide something more objective than gut feelings when
we decide what eclipse and java versions m2e has to support.
