# On by default telemetry

On by default telemetry is being introduced to Audacity. This does not
comply with the No Malware section of the FSDG.

Will be possible to disable Audacity telemetry in our official Guix
package definition using a build flag or a patch?

AFAIK the answer is yes, this means Audacity Guix package can (easily) be "transformed" to be FSDG compliant when (if?) telemetry will be set opt-out upstream; if the answer will be no, we should remove the next
Audacity-with-undisableable-telemetry version.

For reference, that’s what we do for Ardour, which has a benign up-to-date? check that is enabled by default and that we remove in a patch. Oddly enough there was no big discussion about any of this, perhaps because disabling features like that is pretty common and has been done for decades in Debian.
