Two years ago, we introduced <a
This time, after a major revamp, we are re-introducing it to you!

Contributing is as easy as installing the package - a weekly cron job
will take care of the rest. You will be sending us a list of packages
installed on your system, along with the architecture and mirror you
use. This information will help us prioritize our efforts and make
Arch even better. So, go ahead and spread the word!

For more details see pkgstats -h or just read the simple source code.
You can view the collected data at the <a
