Exactly what I was talking about. :)

Firefox counts the number of times the local software pings the Mozilla servers for updates to the blacklist. I've found this a fairly reliable figure because I can tell (sadly) when the Gaelic college is on holidays. Number drops by about 20 users and it always coincides with holidays.

So perhaps the thing we could count would be the pings and installed version sends to check if there is an update available. That way it doesn't matter how many times you re-use the installation file as you're counting the installations which are pinging for updates. Dunno if that includes the locale data but I'd be interested too. Even if it isn't 100% accurate.

That sort of data is notoriously inaccurate in OpenSource.

It's not as though we can track number of licenses sold or anything like
that.  Such things are often considered intrusive!  it might be good to
know but on the other hand we respect people's privacy far more.

One person might download an update many times before it gets applied.
Others might download it once and then carry it to many machines (across a
network for example).
