If you want any form of statistics, then it has to be Piwik (now
called Matomo btw)

Processing of our logs for web statistics purposes is not permitted by
our privacy policies (see https://kde.org/privacypolicy.php).

It is also much more problematic to process logs as people have no way
of opting out from that processing because every request is logged -
whereas Piwik/Matomo gives them the ability to opt out.
