code.google.com used to tell you how many times your packages had been downloaded. Before being automatically migrated to github, my barebonesmvc/php had been downloaded over 7K times at my last recollection, but now on github hasn't been starred even once as github.com/dexygen/jackrabbitmvc And stars are what a lot of people are "measuring" by these days. Github has a lot of catching up to do with what was code.google.com in this regard. Maybe Microsoft can pull its head out of the previous maintainers' ass(es) on this one.
