I notice that between 2012.2 and 2012.3 the setup lost the ability to choose whether or not to send eZ registration information on installation of an ezpublish package. I always tended to send the information on installing a live version but I didn't on the numerous test installs that I did for - well - testing. I understand that you want metrics, but my strong feeling is that if you collect these metrics they're just going to be wrong anyway... and personally I can just edit kernel/setup/steps/ezstep_registration.php but I don't think that's the right thing to do. I'm just asking y'all to rethink this one.

Indeed, the idea was to have better tracking, to then be able to better service.
Would this hurdle be removed, at least partially, if you could use your share.ez.no account to pre-fill the data ? I am thinking of a login action available at the registration page step, where one could authenticate against share.ez.no, within the installer.

My objection is not I have to fill out the data - It's easy to fill in a bunch of x's. My objection is more that I don't have an opt-out - except by modifying code in advance. It's fine if it's by default on... just give me the option to turn it off.
Maybe it's a philosophical thing. I just don't like being forced to send information anywhere without the ability to control it and I wouldn't want to have to authenticate anything to install a community version of anything. That's why if you do get a mail from me it'll be filled out as email@example.com or some-such.
I also don't think the information is going to be all that accurate except for raw numbers - maybe if there were a question "is this a test or production install?"
Maybe I'm just getting exercised about something that doesn't much matter to anyone else.
