    Question popularity-contest project - Is this project still alive?

    In the page https://popcon.ubuntu.com (linked by https://www.ubuntu.com/legal/websites)
    The graph 'Number of submissions per architecture' is to small to be readable
    The link to popularity-contest project is unreachable
    The link http://popcon.alioth.debian.org/ is unreachable
    The author Avery Pennarun penwarr@debian.org cited in the README is unreachable
    README says: The result of the survey is available at http://popcon.debian.org/
    but https://popcon.ubuntu.com is not mentioned

    On my Ubuntu Cosmic i find installed the package popularity-contest
    corrado@corrado-p3-cosmic:~$ apt policy popularity-contest
    popularity-contest:
    Installed: 1.67ubuntu2
    Candidate: 1.67ubuntu2

    but I'm unable to understand if my data are sent to the project.

    Is this project still alive? mantained?

    thanks

    It is one of the packages I uninstall straightaway, but the first link you provide was last generated on "Fri Oct 26 03:49:21 2018 UTC".. wait a day or two and check the numbers but I'd suspect the package is still live.

    The package is still live and the page is automatically updated but seems unmaintained. The README and FAQ are copy of the ones in https://popcon.debian.org/
