[Bioc-devel] Freezen download statistics for packages

The numbers were either the same or just increased by 1-3 counts (almost the same). This increment in one week doesn’t make sense statistically for packages with hundreds of downloads per month. I have checked about 10 packages, not only mine. Anyway, the chance for all these packages get either none or just a few downloads in a whole week is almost 0. I tend to believe this is a global issue.
I didn’t check the overall stats, but I did check the popular packages including this one with thousands of downloads:
The download seen today is 1916/30123. You may want to see how much is the change in then next update.

 Are the numbers the same or almost the same? That's a big
 difference. If they are not the same, it means there have
 been downloads in the past week. If they are almost the
 same, then things are probably working.

 Also, it is entirely possible that nobody downloaded a given
 package in a given week.

 I took a look and it seems that all of our scripts are
 running properly. If you want to archive the current page so
 you can compare it to new results, feel free. You might also
 want to look at http://bioconductor.org/packages/stats/ which gives
 stats for all packages; if none of those numbers change,
 then there is almost certainly a problem.
