The popularity-contest package sets up a cron job that will
periodically anonymously submit to the Ubuntu developers
statistics about the most used Ubuntu packages on this system.
This information helps Ubuntu make decisions such as which packages
should go on the first CD. It also lets Ubuntu improve future versions
of the distribution so that the most popular packages are the ones which
are installed automatically for new users.
