- Get them to install popularity-contest. This will make their
machine show up on popcon.debian.org, and we would assume there are
users of the given machine. Not very accurate, as machines !=
individuals. Easy to fool, but I believe we should assume people
- Set up a wiki page, and get people to put up their name and mail
address (perhaps slightly obfuscated to make it harder for address
harwesters), and count the number of names on the page. When the
count is reached, send email to all the addresses asking them to
confirm that the list is correct. Easy to fool, but I believe we
should assume people are honest. If we start to suspect
non-existing people on the list, we can start asking for GPG
I would recommend the last option myself, but would like all m68k
machines to report to popcon.debian.org too. :)

That is probably not necessary, yes. :)
