more exactly (from the changelog):

I dont support this change as I think it might lead to a confusing user 
experience during installation. Normaly we try to minimize choice and provide 
sane defaults, under the assumption, that choice lets to confusion (and to 
ease installation). 

Not sending popcon data is a sane default (from the users POV, even though we 
would like to get more data how Debian Edu is used.) 

Also the text in the template is inaccurate and/or misleading. It talks 
about "anonymous" data reports to popcon, without stating that this might not 
be anonymous at all, depending whether you have a fixed IP or not. 

So I suggest to revert this change and default to "no" again.
