Description: send “I am alive” ping to Canonical
This package installs a daily cron job for surveying how many original OEM
installs are running in the world. Note that this does not send any
user specific data; it only transmits the operating system version
(/var/lib/ubuntu_dist_channel), the machine product name, and a counter how
many pings were sent.
