popularity-contest on GNU/Hurd



Hello Debian GNU/Hurd,

In bug #237874 against popularity-contest, Göran Weinholt told us
/dev/urandom do not exist on GNU/Hurd. This cause popularity-contest
installation process to generate the same HOSTID of 
'd41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e'. This lead to all GNU/Hurd 
machines to be considered the same by popularity-contest.  

We will fix that in the next upload, but that will only affect new
installations.

If you have a file /etc/popularity-contest.conf already, please
change MY_HOSTID to the md5sum of a really random file.
Make sure the value must match ^[a-f0-9]{32}$ in any case.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Cheers,
--
