Subject Re: hit counters for incubating web sites
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2008 17:08:42 GMT
I'm also very interested in this subject. Untill now I was parsing the
apache http logs for the download statistics information for Incubator
projects, but now that the distributions are starting to get mirrored,
I guess I'll need to find a new way.

Maybe Vadim Gritsenko would track incubator projects, now that they
are all working the same way as the TLP ? Or if the problem is free
cycles, I'm willing to give some help here to get things done for
Incubator projects as well.
