​I just wanted to give a short update into my investigation of our Google
Analytics usage.

* Only our Admin, Rob Weir, would seem to have any control on making the
viewing of ANY reports public. I will contact Rob. And, see what we can do
to add more admins, etc.

* There are several reports available for viewing. The Overview Report
might be useful for public consumption.

* We are using an older version of the GA javascript collection mechanism.
I will test out the newer one sometime over the next few days and report on

* There IS general individual usage collection in some reports but the
"user" information is translated into something called a "client id" -- so
not by IP.

*  For some general information on what is collected, please see:

​In summary. Still under investigation. As a few of us DO have rights to
this, it would be nice if folks with direct access would voice an opinion.​
