Contagem de nós

Fedora CoreOS nodes are counted by the Fedora infrastructure via the Count Me feature. This system is explicitly designed to make sure that no personally identifiable information is sent from counted systems. It also ensures that the Fedora infrastructure does not collect any personal data. The nickname for this counting mechanism is "Count Me", from the option name. Implementation details of this feature are available in DNF Better Counting change request for Fedora 32. In short, the Count Me mechanism works by telling Fedora servers how old your system is (with a very large approximation).

Nos nós do Fedora CoreOS, esta funcionalidade é implementada no rpm-ostree como um método autônomo. A nova implementação tem as mesmas propriedades de preservação de privacidade da implementação original do DNF.
