# Request for data collection review form

**All questions are mandatory. You must receive review from a data steward peer on your responses to these questions before shipping new data collection.**

1) What questions will you answer with this data?
We want to attribute unexpected errors to specific threads in order to see eventual patterns.

2) Why does Mozilla need to answer these questions?  Are there benefits for users? Do we need this information to address product or business requirements? 
To help reducing unexpected errors in thread handling.

3) What alternative methods did you consider to answer these questions? Why were they not sufficient?
We could live without this, but if it happens it would be nice to see which thread caused this.

4) Can current instrumentation answer these questions?
Yes, it is just a MOZ_CRASH_UNSAFE.

5) List all proposed measurements and indicate the category of data collection for each measurement, using the [Firefox data collection categories](https://wiki.mozilla.org/Data_Collection) found on the Mozilla wiki.   

**Note that the data steward reviewing your request will characterize your data collection based on the highest (and most sensitive) category.**
