I have a small open source project, hosted on Google Code, and I'd like to be able to get a sense as to where and how the project is being used (besides the visitor info I can get from Google Analytics, and the download counts).
As it is open source and does not contain any 'powered by' or tracking code, I realize this is pretty much impossible, so I am trying to figure out how to have the user's of the project volunteer this information. All I can think of off of the top of my head is:
- Starting a discussion thread that people could post links to the sites they've used the code on.
Any suggestions as to the best way to get any insight into this?
