lloydwood, the activity stats come from downloads and webpage views, as well as commits and bug/request/support updates - so if you have lots of users it doesn't necessarily matter how often you update it. While I agree it's a lot more than half, PStreams is very quiet, but not dead, and is in the 89th percentile, so let's say 88% are dead :-)

The end of Advogato?

Like many others, I don't blog anywhere else (I barely write anything here!) and have always enjoyed advogato's recentlog. I've found it very educational, entertaining, and a great way to learn about lots of projects that I would never have actively sought out. I would be very sorry to see this site go - for years it's been the first website I visit when surfing. As for the minimal interface, I've always thought it's perfect -- the content has always been more important.

Thanks to raph and to everyone who's ever posted something that I found interesting. It's been a fantastic demonstration of the trust metric and a fantastic resource for free software developers and evangelists. I hope it will continue to be.
