@y6nH while I don't think the PR should go in (for multiple reasons), I do kinda feel like sending that person some love. I haven't read all of it, but nobody deserves having to deal with stuff like https://github.com/audacity/audacity/pull/835#issuecomment-834277830 .
@raboof Absolutely, no need to get offensive about it.
There's a proper response on the PR now, clarifying that it's only on GitHub builds (so not if you install it through a repo), and disabled by default.
@andi Neither have I, but I think it's completely warranted, and I'd be worried if I didn't see such a reaction to be honest. I trust the new maintainers will realize this is not the way the community wants to go.
@unfa I wish there will be a new Open Source Audio Recording software that will come out if this becomes a thing.
@benofbrown it has been already there since some months now. See https://github.com/musescore/MuseScore/tree/master/thirdparty/qt-google-analytics
So since they already use google analytics for Musescore, kinda makes sense for them to add it for Audacity, no?
Not that I am defending them, but I think we are too late.
The way they are handling the whole thing makes me think they have future plans for Audacity besides this.
"Musescore Pro" is already a thing https://musescore.com/upgrade "Audacity Pro" next?
@unfa @email@example.com If they want to get dropped from debian that's a good way of going about it...
@firstname.lastname@example.org updated pr desc says .. they still insist using GA and Yandex even its opt-in and disabled by default
