mailman 1
brackup 13
memcached-commits 14
gearman 25
djabberd 123
perlbal 197
mogilefs 347
yadis 413
memcached 1120
Guess I know which projects are popular.

(yadis is the old name for OpenID, btw...)

I'm actually surprised that brackup has any subscribers, considering I just put up the mailing list and there's been like zero posts so far.

(playing with qpsmtpd... adding more fun plugins)

I'm guessing Yadis is popular because a lot of people (including non-coders like me) can see the potential of a distributed ID system and want to see it expand and be adopted, etc.

Memcache, otoh, is popular because, well, dude, Facebook. And Wikipedia. And Slashdot. Oh, and that other site that uses it, the one everyone's leaving at the moment...

On the subject of OpenID though; any chance you could get Blogspot/Google Accounts to be identity providers? That'd make life so much easier for those of us wanting to turn of anonymity on our various blogs.
