And how can I optout from this "statistics collection"?

You do have an option for optout all-data-collecting right?

Be honest. Write this to download page or you'll become another evil google.
"If you use Tor, we collect your computer information and what onion you visit."
"Write xxxxx to torrc file to opt-out." <--- Ideas?

cypherpunks, you seriously misunderstood the purposes of this ticket.

It is about doing our own measurements on our own devices under lab conditions, so we can find out how much memory Tor is using.

Hello!

You don't have to opt in or out of anything.

This is an experiment we are doing on *my* (as in, the device I carry with me in my pocket) Android phone to figure out if we can make Tor use less memory - once we have some results from this, which you can look at for yourself, we will figure out some places in the Tor source code where we will optimise and see if we can make Tor perform better such that it uses less memory on Android phones. This will hopefully allow more people, even with inexpensive devices, to have a decent experience using Tor :-)

lol this cypherpunks misunderstood this ticket. But Tor project should tag properly.

I suggest "internal" tag or "teamonly" tag.

These tickets, tagged with 034-removed-*, are no longer in-scope for 0.3.4. We can reconsider any of them, if time permits.
