Thanks for bringing this up.  I guess we should look at the FAQ or
something to make it clear on this point.  Where did you get the idea
that popcon don't work with noatime?

I don't remember exactly. Possibly was a wrong extrapolation of
information in LWN: discussiong noatime/relatime it listed
few applications (popcon and few mail and backup programs) which
"required" atime functionality.

But I think I read also something in debian-devel or in an other
debian resource (years a go).

Personally a good post in planet about popcon (call of volunteers, privacy and noatime) would help. But to reach sysadmin I think
we must create a wiki page, links it to the planet article and
let waiting the spreading of the "news".
