Hello Andrei,

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?

package manager presence has improved, so I would expect dlang.org downloads to represent a smaller fraction of total downloads than it used to.
