"Today, Fedora has the basic statistics around downloads and
unique IP address hits to the update repositories. For example,
Fedora's stats wiki currently note that there have been nearly 5
million connections to the Fedora 14 repositories. That number
drops to 2.6 million for Fedora 15 and 874 thousand for the more
recent Fedora 16 release.
"'Some people might say 'oh my gosh the number of unique address
are going down', but it is unique and is not counting the ones that
came before,' Bergeron said. 'So what does it mean? Are we slowing
down? It's hard to say.'
"Bergeron added that currently all Fedora does is lay the
statistics out and they don't point to an indication of what the
data actually means."
