Summary0003732: No build-time configuration to disable IP2C auto updates (phoning home)
DescriptionI don't think we have a CMake build system option to disable phoning home for IP2C auto updates at source code build-time, which are enabled by default in user configuration. So there's no real way to disable them entirely or by default system-wide, the user will have to navigate at first launch to the configuration (or change it then after from configuration).

We already have WITH_AUTOUPDATES definition, but it's used only with the Mendeley Autoupdater on Windows for Doomseeker updates.

The result is that distributions who want to disable IP2C auto update (phoning home) behavior in Doomseeker need to supply a code patch to IP2C, instead of a build time configuration flag.
Additional InformationY'know, I suppose Debian disables phoning home to Mozilla in Firefox packages at build time.

I'm assuming there is interest to keep the IP2C Auto Update feature enabled by default (except if explicitly requested otherwise by the source builder / package distributor).

(Also a crazy related but unrelated bloat idea that is totally likely not feasible with Qt: Exposing the IP2C auto update option to enterprises with Win32 APIs on Windows, via Group Policies.)
