The pp-popularity-contest package sets up a cron job that periodically
submits the developers anonymous statistics on the usage of Rost Lab
prediction methods installed on this system. The installation of this
package is completely voluntary (though recommended): there is no
difference in the performance or functionality of the prediction methods.
The information gathered helps making decisions like which packages
should receive higher priority when fixing bugs or receive additional
resources for further development and support.
This information is also very important when the Rost Lab applies for
funding. Traditionally, these prediction methods are made available on
the PredictProtein website, granting perfect statistics. The distribution
as part of the Debian+Ubuntu Linux distributions shall increase the
user base and allow for additional workflows to serve the scientific
community better. Still, this is an experiment. It is only the statistics
gathered through this package that grants a justification to the group
and its funding agencies for the additional investments needed for
this distribution channel and the potential drop in the usage of the
PredictProtein website.
