What is the data in question, and why propose to collect it?

The main data we want is which apps people have installed. The primary
purpose is to enable recommendations for applications - we'd like to
predict which apps you might want to install, based on what other
users have installed. eg. "You are using Inkscape; you might also be
interested in the GIMP."

I would like to point out that the GNOME Foundation does not collect
any data and does not plan to do so in the future. The data in
question is potentially collected by individual distributions at their
own discretion.
