    Default avoid "notifying Zimbra of your installation" stop

    I would have a switch in install.sh, something like
    ./install.sh --notify-skip
    the effect of this switch would be to avoid zimbra installation stopping and asking for an answer (yes/no)
    Code:
    You have the option of notifying Zimbra of your installation.
    This helps us to track the uptake of the Zimbra Collaboration Suite.
    The only information that will be transmitted is:                   
            The VERSION of zcs installed (6.0.4_GA_2038_CentOS5_64)     
            The ADMIN EMAIL ADDRESS created (admin@xxxx.xxxx.it)     
    
    Notify Zimbra of your installation? [Yes] No
    This is very annoying if what I want is an unattended upgrade.
    Please, let us a chance, at least!!

    Please, let me know if this is worthwhile to be an RFE and filed as such on bugzilla
    thnx

    I cant think of any way to approve of an unattended upgrade, surely you would want to monitor the upgrade all the way to ensure that it works fine?

    When I upgrade our servers I have multiple monitors tailing a few log files at once so I can watch everything that's happening, and if it takes a few hours to complete, then so be it.

    That said, there's no reason why you couldnt just edit the install script to comment out the part that is waiting for user interraction.

    As far as i can see, lastly zimbra upgrades go down smoothly as vaseline; i do not remeber something going wrong if ssl certs are ok.
    I can laungh upgrade and after 1 hour come back and check the exit status; i upograde always during week-end in extreme hours, 3-4 in the morning of sunday

    I spent somany hours to tail -f zimbra upgrading tmp logs....u cannot imagine
    and now that there is no issue, why should i spent my time tailing them?

    and why should i patch install.sh to remove lines asking me to notify? i i have so many servers to upgarde every new zimbra release....i cannot imagine to pach and patch....

    let things as they be, no problem
