Well, if I don't know *if* it's being used I certainly can't ask the unknown masses. :) I was just looking at some of the packages I recently adopted and noted that many of them seem to have dead or dying upstream. That isn't to say the software isn't still useful but if folks aren't using them... You get what I'm saying.
I'd be nice if there was a way for the client to report what packages they have installed (voluntarily, opt-in of course) or a way for the mirrors to report what updates are being pushed. Perhaps a thought for another day.
