Approximately 15000 portsnap snapshots (i.e., /var/db/portsnap or

'k, *this* sounds like it might be perfect ... would it be possible to
get a copy of the portsnap logs to see about setting up some sort of
auto-parse?  Maybe setup some statistics and graphs?

You mean something like http://www.daemonology.net/portsnap/stats.html ?

Not really ... more interested in a simpler graph / #s that denote # of distinct hosts for each version of FreeBSD each month ... depending on the amount of data you can pull out of the logs, getting #s per country, and #s per top level domain (ie. yahoo.com) would be cool too ...


  "gathering the access logs for portsnap.daemonology.net,
   portsnap1.freebsd.org, and portsnap2.freebsd.org"

Are those the *only* portsnap servers, or are there more? Again, the idea is to get a complete, and as accurate as possible, picture ...

There are still a lot of people (particularly on pre-6.0 systems) who are using CVSup rather than portsnap for updating their ports trees.

Actually, I'm ashamed to say that I'm still using CVSup also ... going to work on getting myself switched over too ...
