A telemetry person should review this. I don't know exactly what their requirements are for making these permanent...

As far as correctness goes, r+. Strings terminate, you used "never" instead of "default"... just needs a properly-formatted commit message.

However, Data Collection Review[1] from a Data Steward is needed to make probes permanent. (dang, I wish we had the "make it permanent" and "renew expiry" short forms ready... for now we're stuck with the full request.md)

Preliminary note:

The "Data Collection Category" in the review request refers to the categories documented here: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Data_Collection#Data_Collection_Categories

This is no big deal, they're all "Category 1: Technical"

DATA COLLECTION REVIEW RESPONSE:

    Is there or will there be documentation that describes the schema for the ultimate data set available publicly, complete and accurate? 

Standard Telemetry mechanisms apply.

    Is there a control mechanism that allows the user to turn the data collection on and off?

Standard Telemetry mechanisms apply.

    If the request is for permanent data collection, is there someone who will monitor the data over time?

Yes, :smaug.

    Using the category system of data types on the Mozilla wiki, what collection type of data do the requested measurements fall under?

Category 1, Technical

    Is the data collection request for default-on or default-off?

default on

    Does the instrumentation include the addition of any new identifiers?

No.

    Is the data collection covered by the existing Firefox privacy notice? 

Yes.

    Does there need to be a check-in in the future to determine whether to renew the data?

No, it's permanent.
