I assume I am not the only one who doublechecked
/etc/popularity-contest.conf and realized PARTICIPATE=yes was missing.
I know it had been working some time ago (shortly after woody's
release?) but some update then introduced checking $PARTICIPATE. And
you should _really_ check /etc/popularity-contest.conf if you are
running woody, this version will ask with debconf whether it should
participate but it will add PARTICIPATE=yes if
/etc/popularity-contest.conf already exist.
The version in sid is fine.
