As of December 2014, the theme submission guidelines require Redux be embedded, not installed as a plugin. They also require that all aspects of tracking be removed from themes, even opt-in. Redux has an opt-in tracking platform built in to help us gather statistics about users who use Redux. We use this to debug our code and learn of plugin conflict impact. To fully comply with the requirements, this article is being published.

There is a new argument called disable_tracking which has been added to Redux. When a theme embeds Redux, and sets this argument to true, the ReduxTracking class is not called. A dev can then delete the tracking class and be fully compliant with requirements. That class is located in: ~/ReduxCore/inc/tracking.php.
