Description:
------------
The "Popular Packages" list on the frontpage of the website has a feed icon, but there is no such feed listed on the feeds page. We should either remove the icon or add the feed.

Also a number like 2837.7424 seems to be too accurate, one or too decimal places should be enough.

Another problem in my opinion: This list won't change very much, as XML_RPC and PEAR come with the installer and will be always in this list.

the feed can be created.

Your other issue is interesting - I designed the query so that it is more malleable.  Should a really popular application be released that has lots of downloads right after it is released, it will pop to the top of the list immediately.

The stats are not aggregated - it is per release.  In other words, it shows the average number of downloads per day *of that version* since the displayed version was released

It's hard to explain this clearly, but it the stats actually show the most regularly downloaded *releases*, not just the most downloaded packages of all time.

XML_RPC is no longer required for the installer to operate, and I might actually remove it as a dep altogether in 1.5.  It is no longer bundled in the .phar files, although I think it is still downloaded by go-pear, perhaps we should remove that

Okay, thanks for the explaination. Then my request would be in short words:
- create the feed
- shorten the accuracy of the download counter to one or two decimals

This bug has been fixed in CVS.

If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on pear.php.net by the end of next Sunday (CET).

If this was a problem with the pear.php.net website, the change should be live shortly.

Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release.

Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
