So, these numbers allow for some interesting insight. However they'll be

extremely few users.
A quick look into the logs indicates that the requests on the 100G

Actually I would have expected exactly what your numbers show:
- The older the distribution, the less packages are there:
Making stuff ready for older distributions gets more and more
complicated, the older the distribution is.
- Only little use of non SUSE packages. Adapting SUSE packages to work
with the other distros makes a lot of work also.
- Lots of Factory stuff, as BuildService gets used more often.
I also think not mirroring Factory is a good idea. In Application:Geo I
(we) use Factory mainly as a testbed. So I step by step fixed compiler
bugs and dependencies, so the changes may be included in upstream early
and when next release is ready the stuff works from the first day on.
I doubt everybody ever really installs the Factory stuff there.
The main targets for me are 10.2 and 10.3. For some packages I care for
older and really old packages, but for most this is not the case.
But these, where I care for old distributions, are these, which I do not
want to loose.
For the downloads I would expect same distibution except for Factory.
Would be nice to see the numbers. When does the BuildService stats work
again? It's a long time for debugging it.
P.S. And please add "osc wipebinaries" to the Webinterface. That
would save space also (a little :-).
