<h1>Day 9: VLC community numbers</h1>
<p>For our 9<sup>th</sup> day, we'd like to speak about numbers.</p>
<h2>Commiters</h2>
<p>The <b>number of committers</b> metric is too often discarded, in open source projects.<br />
We believe this is a good way to mesure the popularity of a project.</p>
<h3>Official committers</h3>
<p>The <b>official commiters</b> are the ones who have or had write access.<br />
They are <b>48 of them</b>, but most of them are inactive, those days...</p>
<h3>External committers</h3>
<p>The <b>external commiters</b> are people from the community, who send patches.
There patches are then applied into the main repository, by other committers.<br />
They are more than <b>500 of them</b>, during the 10 years of the project duration.</p>
<h2>Downloads</h2>
<p>The <b>download numbers</b> are always inaccurate, because many downloads are not counted:<br />
<ul class="bullets">
<li>Linux numbers, because users download directly on their distributions;</li>
<li>Unofficial mirrors, and direct FTP accesses;</li>
<li>Websites like <b>download.com</b>, <b>CNET</b>, <b>01Net</b> or <b>softopedia</b>.</li>
</ul></p>
<h3>Numbers before sf.net</h3>
<p>When we mainly used our own set of mirrors, we had counted <b>439 522 210</b> direct downloads.</p>
<p>Those downloads were done between <em style="font-style: italic;">December 2004</em> and <em style="font-style: italic;">June 2010</em>
and did not include updates.</p>
<h3>Numbers since sf.net</h3>
<p>Since last june, we are using SourceForge for distribution, especially in order to have a 3<sup>rd</sup> party counting the downloads.</p>
<p>As you can see, VLC is already at <a href="http://sourceforge.net/top/topalltime.php?type=downloads">the 4<sup>th</sup> position</a>, on
the <a href="http://sourceforge.net/top/topalltime.php?type=downloads">Top Downloads, For all time of SF.net</a>.</p>
<p>The numbers are over <b>191 million</b>, but are including signatures and updates.<br />The actual numbers are thefore closer to <b>74 million</b>
direct downloads, over the last 7 and half months.</p>
<h2>Users</h2>
<p>As VLC is not phoning home when one uses it (for example, proprietary players like RealPlayer or DivX do), we cannot know exactly the exact userbase.</p>
<p>We can only guess from the download numbers... Do your own estimation then :D</p>
