Other prior art which springs to mind:

Debian has provided a popcon tool for ages, as an opt-in means of
periodically providing feedback on what packages are seeing use in
their distro. It's current incarnation can submit reports via SMTP
or HTTP protocols for added flexibility. https://popcon.debian.org/

OpenBSD takes a low-effort approach and suggests a command in their
install guide which the admin can run to send a copy of dmesg output
to the project so they can keep track of what sorts of hardware is
running their operating system out in the wild.
