Depends if you are looking for 'fast and easy' numbers. or long term ones ...
the project goal is long term numbers ...
The problem is that right now, everything is "word of mouth", except in the
case of PC-BSD, and, I believe, DragonflyBSD ... someone, at one point, had
suggested adding a prompt to sysinstall asking if ppl wanted to participate,
and the response I heard was that someone basically needed to submit a patch
... anyone here know enough about sysinstall to do so? Not to make it an
'opt-out' sort of thing, but opt-in with some sort of visibility other then my
posting these stats once a month ....
