Description

Moved from
Brainstorming_Prague Problem:
We don't know which packages users really use/have installed
We cannot focus our interest on really important packages for our end-users, because we don't know which are important. Those popularity statistics could help us in many ways - for example bug priority of popular package should be higher, or we can decide move the package from/to Factory, ...
Debian has a http://popcon.debian.org/ and popularity-contest package, so we should reuse an existing code. The pupularity-contest executable is a simple Perl script, which should be ported to rpm (replacing of dpkg calls by rpm alternative should be enough).
Those package usage statistics could be integrated into Software Portal and to YaST comparing relative results for individual packages between openSUSE and Debian can give us a valuable information about the community structure (how many users use development tools etc.)

Should be marked as duplicate of #305876, but I have no idea how to do it ;-)
