<i>But it sounds like they've decided to use the update service's web logs, which they already have. It may not be as privacy-cloaking (without an additional hashing step, anyway--which may be required in order to comply with European privacy regulations)</i>
I'm confused here. Are you saying that european privacy regulations do not allow you to read your own apache logs? That's all we're talking about here. We retrieve the logs of the hits against some urls and process the report to see how many unique ips hit that url.
If the european privacy regulations disallow viewing access logs then I cannot imagine how they're functional at all.
