Opt-In Usage Information

When you start ddev for the first time (or install a new release) you'll be asked to decide whether to opt-in to send usage and error information to the developers. You can change this at any time by editing the ~/.ddev/global_config.yaml file and setting instrumentation_opt_in: true or instrumentation_opt_in: false.

If you do choose to send the diagnostics it helps us tremendously in our effort to improve this tool. What information gets sent? Here's an example of what we might see:


Of course if you have any reservations about this, please just opt-out (ddev config global --instrumentation-opt-in=false). If you have any problems or concerns with it, we'd like to know.
