Unfortunately, this graph covers only 2003-2004 period. But it may be
very useful to see an overal growth (starting from middle of 1997). And
growth after pkgsrc-wip has been started (at begin of 2003) may shown us
an effectiveness of pkgrsc-wip project (this may be compared at the
2002-2004 period).

It is possible to built them too?

Anyway, thanks a lot for publishing this.

Kind regards,
