[K12OSN] How many K12LTSP installations?

I like the idea of putting some kind of reporting feature into the distro, but it should be accessible to the administrator after the system has been in place for some time (and the users have had plenty of time to be impressed).  Perhaps a button in the root user's application menu: "submit / update your network profile" or something like that.  

It should be totally voluntary, but be able to track those who submit by assigning them some sort of unique ID, allowing them to inform Eric & Co. that they have added 10 more thin client terminals for the new school year, etc.

Yes, installing Debian this morning because I found this <br>(http://packages.debian.org/testing/misc/education-thin-client-server)<br>I was asked if I wanted to opt in for the 'package popularity poll'...I <br>presume it's all automagical...as I was not asked to do anything<br>after or during the install after I chose  'yes'  =)<br>maybe just a simple script that could be run AFTER said machine was in <br>production, by the admin.  I would use it definately.<br>maybe it could send the dhcp.leases file and you would be able to tell <br>how many clients are running from that...? I don't know how intrusive <br>that is, just an idea.<br><br>--Huck<br><br>John Baillie wrote:<br><br>>Eric:<br>>If you added something that allowed folks to opt in a survey during the<br>>setup or upgrade routine I'd bet you'd get a pretty good response.<br>><br>>John<br>><br><br>_______________________________________________<br>K12OSN mailing list<br>K12OSN at redhat.com<br>https://www.redhat.com/mail!
