Petition to change Chromium's User-Agent header to Google-Agent
#Ubuntu is placing ads in its motd when you ssh in.
The way it fetches this ad is by doing
USER_AGENT="curl/$curl_ver $lsb $platform $cpu $uptime cloud_id/$cloud_id"
curl -A "$USER_AGENT" ...
In other words, Ubuntu is sending Canonical tracking information so it can serve you an ad.
This doesn't exactly run every time you log in (it caches the ad in /var/cache), but still... phoning home for a frickin ad?

We need some help captioning the videos from #ReproLibs so we can make them accessible!! Videos range from 5-18 minutes (don't worry about the keynote!) and are in English.
If you have spare time, please consider contributing! It would be a huge help: http://www.youtube.com/timedtext_cs_panel?c=UCVyLsPwIuxjXtDtRrxRi31Q&tab=2

Not quite as important as us having all your data. But pretty important. On a scale of one to ten, your privacy ranks a solid four.
You can rest assured that - after we've scanned and processed and extracted every last bit of commercial advantage out of your data - the bitter, tarry residue left gumming up the cogs of our machine will be treated in full compliance with the best privacy legislation laundered money can buy.
And that's a promise.
