PredictProtein popularity contest


The pp-popularity-contest package sets up a cron job that periodically submits the developers anonymous statistics on the usage of Rost Lab prediction methods installed on this system. The installation of this package is completely voluntary (though recommended): there is no difference in the performance or functionality of the prediction methods.

The information gathered helps making decisions like which packages should receive higher priority when fixing bugs or receive additional resources for further development and support.

This information is also very important when the Rost Lab applies for funding. Traditionally, these prediction methods are made available on the PredictProtein website, granting perfect statistics. The distribution as part of the Debian+Ubuntu Linux distributions shall increase the user base and allow for additional workflows to serve the scientific community better. Still, this is an experiment. It is only the statistics gathered through this package that grants a justification to the group and its funding agencies for the additional investments needed for this distribution channel and the potential drop in the usage of the PredictProtein website.
