We would like to collect some usage statistics with the users approval.
By default we should not collect anything.
If the user lets us, we should be able to collect thing such as

  • How often Padre is used
  • What kinds of files are being opened (mime-type)
  • which menu items are used and how frequently
  • which shortcuts are used
  • what errors are made in coding
  • what steps the user employs to find a bug
  • In restricted, such as training environments we would like to be able to log the full track of events so we can improve the classes.

  • Version changed from 0.16 to 0.47

Done in PopularityContest? (up to r8654):

  • How often is Padre used
  • MIME-type open counts
  • menu items & shortcuts currently both counted as actions

Errors could be collected from syntax check and beginner errors but as they don't always run the results could not be compared to all_files_edited.

"What steps the user employs to find a bug" - please offer ideas (or add it yourself), because I have no clue how to do this.

I am not really sure this is a good idea. Privacy and all. I suggest we remove this feature altogether.
