MuseScore already has this crap in!
Surprise!
We need to get this stuff reverted.
Muse Group has to stop using Google Analytics and Yandex if they want to work on FOSS.

@unfa No need to revert, it's not been merged yet. Agree it shouldn't be there though ;)

@benofbrown it has been already there since some months now. See github.com/musescore/MuseScore

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 musescore.com/upgrade "Audacity Pro" next?

@benofbrown @unfa Wow, Google and Yandex. I really hope the Arch Linux package maintainers keep their eyes open on things like this. 🤞

@nicemicro @benofbrown Well, maybe if Audacity and Musescore get dropped from repos of major distros, then the Muse Group will listen... Maybe. If they care about Linux people...

@unfa @nicemicro@distrotoot.com If they want to get dropped from debian that's a good way of going about it...

@unfa @benofbrown Because it's free and open source software, the repo maintainers can also decide to gut the surveillance code and build the binary without it.
