As per title, we should add a crash annotation like WindowsErrorReporting or something like that.

Since this added the new flag to the crash ping I also took the time to update
the crash ping documentation with all the flags that have been added and
removed over the last few versions of Firefox.

Depends on D115380

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

Yes, Gabriele Svelto is responsible.

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 for all channels.

Does the instrumentation include the addition of any new identifiers?

No.

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

Yes.

Does the data collection use a third-party collection tool?

No.
