I'm sorry if I misunderstood you, but if you talked about download statistics
then that was far from obvious. I got the impression that you talked about the
same thing as "yersinia", and "yersinia" talked about Popcon.
No. I have only post the question whether this feature, right or wrong as it can be, could be interesting in Fedora, as other distro have done elsewhere. Just to to hold a discussion, if there was interest in the functionality. I think it is better to open a debate  about a feature before seeing what is the best implementation for it, if exists at all or it is better to develop it from scratch.
