Once you've got your packages generated with Packager, wouldn't it be nice to know how many people are downloading them, and from where? This is exactly what our new Download map allows you to know.

Every time an apt-get install your-package or yum install your-package is made, we register that hit, and we display a nice (clustered) map so that you can see at a glance where your users are.

This is extremely useful to know in which part of the world you should concentrate your community or marketing efforts. For instance, from the Download map of the OpenProject application, we can see that while the project seems well known in Europe, it would be useful to dedicate some effort to promote it in the rest of the world.

In the future, we'll add more insights, for instance which distributions are the most used, how many users are polling for updates, etc. Also, note that the Download map is only enabled once you reach 10 downloads.
