The problem with questions like this is to figure out what is really being asked. The questioner usually isn't interested in registration for its own sake. He or she is interested in statistical data: how many users are there? Who are they? Why are they interested?
Users can often be persuaded to provide the same information voluntarily. For example, when they download, they will probably be interested in subscribing to a low-volume list that would be limited to new release announcements and alerts about security bugs, but would not be used for anything else.
