After this thread first started (and given a little prompting from a few
other people) I actually started doing this myself a week ago. I'm doing
it a little more detailed as I'm actually doing a 'cvs update' for every
day of the pkgsrc project since it's start. I then intend to do a
side-by-side comparison with the pkgsrc-wip project to see the interaction
between the two.
I'll hopefully finish in the next few days or so and then I will put the
data up on my site and also make the raw data available to anyone that
wants to use it.
Back to the point . . . on what I've got so far pkgsrc hit 1746 packages
on 27/12/2000. I'm only up to 14/04/2001 (2021 packages) ATM but I have
not seen a nose dive like that in the numbers. My mirror of the CVS was
In fact, I have rarely seen the numbers decrease by more than 5 or 10
going from one day to the next.
