- Two years for entries with an email that might be valid
- One year for entries without a valid email entry
Since there has not been any routine for this before, there is a backlog of almost 100.000 entries.
We have decided to pull the whole backlog at once on November 1.
After this date, the aged-out entries will not be included in the Linux Counter user count, and will not receive email notifications from the counter.
If you registered with the Linux Counter long ago, go over there and log in in order to make sure your entry stays counted."
