The purpose of this project is to create a modal (but beautiful) dialog box that will prompt users on Nightly / Aurora / Beta to ask if they would like to opt in to telemetry and send anonymous performance data about Firefox.  Modal dialogs are interuptive and anoying, but this data is important, and we aren't considering one for the mainstream product, just testing builds.

For context, the current notification bar approach is only generating around a 2% opt-in, which isn't generating enough data.
Keeping with the space theme of our pre-release builds, because space is awesome :)

Note that this dialog only appears for nightly / aurora / beta when the user has a new profile.  It is never shown to users on mainstream Firefox.
sweet. Tara's is the messaging right? We are collecting anonymous usage data in addition to performance data.

I am not an English expert. It sounds close enough to me, it's up to you guys + Sid.
Some nits on text: the data is not always aggregate (some of it is a string, such as the application name) and as cjung said, we need to mention we're collecting anonymous usage data too.

I filed bug 685373 for tweaking the text.
Taras - With bug 699806 making progress do you want to pursue this for beta only or can we resolve this one?
