Description Maciej Barć gentoo-dev 2021-05-07 21:19:03 UTC
In `src_configure' of media-sound/musescore exist those entries:
-DBUILD_CRASH_REPORTER=OFF
-DBUILD_TELEMETRY_MODULE=ON

My first concern is that telemetry should be turned OFF by default.
Second is that the crash reporter is disabled but telemetry is enabled?
How is that beneficial?

can you confirm that data is sent/leaked?

No I can not at the moment.

Btw. the way I have stumbled upon this was by looking through packages of software affiliated with the Muse Group (because of latest events where OSS Muse developers tried inserting telemetry into Audacity) and this script caught my interest.

imo it builds the telemetry module but it's not enabled by default in the gui. but should be verified.
