Bug#930446: popularity-contest: unable to submit report, impossible to debug
I have some new info:
When submission fails, popcon-upload dies with a timeout. There should
probably be a randomized sleep to distribute the server load better. I
think there could be a lot more popcon submissions if this is done.
Also, popcon-upload should log errors to syslog.
The fallback to email only happens if "$MODE" = "--crond". But if the
script is called via cron.daily it gets called without parameters and
this never happens. Is this intentional?
