Opt-in / Opt-Out? A breakout topic for the F40 Change Request on Privacy-preserving telemetry for Fedora Workstation

All telemetry collection MUST be an opt-in feature (disabled by default). I’m strongly against enabling it by default.

Then the statement “Privacy-preserving Telemetry” is not true. We want privacy - that is, no telemetry at all.

Please add the ability to completely get rid of it by removing the telemetry collector package.

The most popular GNOME Shell extension is system tray icons support. The GNOME developers have removed the legacy tray support, but end users are suffering.

Did they bring back tray support after looking at the number of downloads? Of course not.
