This works correctly if all clients do a dnf run at least once a
week. Is this really expected?
Maybe use this instead:
"count=fresh" → this is the first dnf invocation on a fresh install
"count=monthly" → this is used the first time in every 29.53 day
cycle, except if this is a fresh install
(i.e. count=fresh is sent instead)
"count=weekly" → this is used the first time in every 7 day cycle,
except if this is a fresh install or also the
first time in the 29.53 day cycle (i.e. only if
neither count=fresh nor count=monthly are sent)
If neither of those three cases apply no argument is sent.
The above allows to do stats:
1. systems active every week
2. systems active every month
3. systems that survive a week
4. systems that survive a month
(And of course all stats derived from the above: systems that didn't
survive the first week, and so on).
