Open Source Census

Meike wonders about Open Source Census and their 45 MB tarball (and several other strange things).

The good news is: There is a 270KB ruby thingy which seems to do the same, and even while marked as Expert User Only it seems to run just fine... I think; I lost patience after it scanned my /home for 6 minutes, and I didn't found a possibility to tell it not to scan my /home (which I don't wont him to scan) or /srv (which just contains a lot of files where it won't find anything usefull).

BTW: While we are at complaining at them: Please make the system so, that I don't need to register to send you my data. Thanks.
