There have been 1677 dmd downloads per day (net after
discounting Travis CI) on average over the past 28 days (i.e.
four weeks ending Sunday, November 15).
what do you think how good the download numbers are
representing the popularity of D? Because I myself have
downloaded the new compiler several times. One for work, one
for home and one for the virtual machine I guess.
As long as we didn't change something in D that affects how often
one person downloads the compiler, these are independent
variables and do not affect the trend. One or three years ago (or
if D were as it was one or three years ago), would you not have
downloaded the compiler the same number of times?
