[Sur] [Sugar-devel] [FEATURE] Usage statistics gathering

Hi Sridhar,
No need for confusion, we are working on the same implementation of 
collection of
usage statistics, as we have similar requirements.

I have been coordinating with Aleksey to accomodate our requirements 
with his work.
The only difference I see is that in Peru we can't count on having a 
schoolserver so the
client will have to cache some data.

Locally, for the previous study we collected journals, browser and error 
logs [1].
Now user interaction events will be specifically recorded for research 
and feedback.
An implementation of this functionality at the Sugar level (or X11+dbus)
will facilitate research on use and metrics for improvement of the 
user's learning

It would be wonderful if researchers could agree on what metrics we 
would require to
measure. I'm proposing from our previous experience to begin with 
Activity Focus / unfocus
as well as start/stop as a reference.

I have been following OLPC-AU's process and consider your experience a 
model for
the Puno startup deployment.

I am cc'ing Julián Cristia who is an economist working with the IADB and 
one of the
authors of quite an extensive Experimental Assessment of OLPC Peru [2].
Also cc'ing the Puno team.

Warm regards,
