Statistics for October 2009

Welcome to a new instalment of the statistics posts.

As usual, these statistics refer to package description files. A package description is a .info file that describes the information that Fink needs in order to manage packages. Sometimes a package is split into multiple .info files (e.g. package-10.5.info and package-10.6.info). It is also possible that a single .info file defines multiple packages: split-offs, different Perl/Python/… versions, -mac/-x11, etc. I’ve also counted a .info file that is in both stable and unstable as a single file.

The (monthly) evolution of the number of package descriptions is shown inside parentheses/in italics.

Currently Fink has 5,385 (+56) .info files split into the following sections:
