In the metrics connector interface, don't use a potentially blocking loop if we get an event we don't know about.
22:03 Changeset [24045] by broder
Add logic to metrics code to wait for 1ms before actually reading events from the connector. This batches a bunch of quick successive events together, rather than continually waking up the gatherer, which minimizes the performance impact to the rest of the system.

Create debathena-metrics package for gathering information on how Athena is being used. This package will start a daemon at the beginning of a login session. This daemon captures any path executed by the user over the course of their session, any packages installed by the user, and the total length of the login session. The collected information is sent to wslogger when the user is logged out.

02:58 Changeset [24028] by broder
In order to let gdm-config add the new diversions at approximately the same time that reactivate is dropping them, we can't use DEB_UNDIVERT_FILES, so write some more clever code of our own instead. (Because gdm-config's postinst was triggering before reactivate's, it was to trying and create the diversions before reactivate had removed them.)

gdm-config 1.15: Make the code break less, and add Trac closer

16:22 Changeset [24009] by geofft
Two user-friendliness tweaks to the installer. - If you have ubuntu-desktop installed, suggest using sudo to become root. - Don't prompt about debathena-build-depends; it's a strange question for normals, and devs are assumed to be able to know how to install this package on their own.
