download statistics from the daily win builds

Christian Brabandt
Hi,
I thought, that I share some download statistics from the daily Vim
builds from the vim-win32-installer repository that I created today.

So here are some statistics for the releases 8.1.1201 (Apr 25th, 2019) -
8.1.1336 (May 17th, 2019).

|Version |x86 zip|x64 zip|x86 exe|x64 exe|32bit|64bit|  Sum | % x64| % EXE|
|--------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-----|-----|------|------|------|
|8.1.1336|   0   |  340  |    0  |  290  |   0 |  630|  630 | 100% | 46%  |
|8.1.1330|   0   |  711  |    0  | 1000  |   0 | 1711| 1711 | 100% | 58%  |
|8.1.1329|   0   |  389  |    0  |  310  |   0 |  699|  699 | 100% | 44%  |
|8.1.1324|  42   |  226  |   59  |  184  | 101 |  410|  511 |  80% | 48%  |
|8.1.1315|  33   |  209  |   38  |  207  |  71 |  416|  487 |  85% | 50%  |
|8.1.1312|   0   |  335  |    0  |  290  |   0 |  625|  625 | 100% | 46%  |
|8.1.1302|  69   |  372  |   66  |  298  | 135 |  670|  805 |  83% | 45%  |
|8.1.1286|  53   |  533  |   72  |  590  | 125 | 1123| 1248 |  90% | 53%  |
|8.1.1282|  50   |  420  |   61  |  339  | 111 |  759|  870 |  87% | 46%  |
|8.1.1248|   0   |  575  |    0  |  590  |   0 | 1165| 1165 | 100% | 51%  |
|8.1.1244|  52   |  494  |   72  |  251  | 124 |  745|  869 |  86% | 37%  |
|8.1.1240|  36   |  286  |   48  |  193  |  84 |  479|  563 |  85% | 43%  |
|8.1.1239|  49   |  359  |   61  |  277  | 110 |  636|  746 |  85% | 45%  |
|8.1.1234|   0   |  267  |   48  |  214  |  48 |  481|  529 |  91% | 50%  |
|8.1.1222|  53   |  137  |   48  |  214  | 101 |  351|  452 |  78% | 58%  |
|8.1.1201|  80   |  315  |  115  |  833  | 195 | 1148| 1343 |  85% | 71%  |
|----------------------------------------------------|------|------|------|
|          Total                                     |13.253|  90% | 49%  |
|----------------------------------------------------|------|------|------|

So in general, about 90% of all downloads will be for the 64bit version
of the Vim builds. At the same time the ratio between installer and zip
file is roughly 50%. While the download of the pdb/debug zip files is
negligible I find it quite surprising, that the 32bit downloads is only
about 10% on average. Also I would certainly not have expected that the
installer makes up about half of the downloads. At the same time around
14.000 downloads in total is quite impressing for a 3 week period.

The statistics is also available at
https://github.com/vim/vim-win32-installer/wiki/Download-Statistics

On a related note: Since today there is a signed win32 installer
available. Signing the releases is provided by SignPath.io that provides
a free signing feature for OpenSource projects. It still requires some
manual effort to upload the signed artifacts back on github, so I will
only upload those signed artifacts every once in a while (if I don't
forget :))

Best,
Christian

Nice, thanks for sharing. On a related note, the Homebrew package manager has
been collecting download statistics for some time. This is what `brew info vim`
prints right now:

vim: stable 8.1.1300 (bottled), HEAD
[…]
==> Analytics
install: 58,757 (30 days), 186,730 (90 days), 808,222 (365 days)
install_on_request: 54,085 (30 days), 171,084 (90 days), 715,840 (365 days)

That’s not as detailed as your report, but the numbers are… interesting.

Life.

I'm not surprised that 90% is 64 bit, I would expect users who get the
latest Vim also have recent hardware and plenty of memory. And "64 bit"
just sounds better than "32 bit".

It's indeed surprising there are many downloads for the zip files.
Perhaps there is some script at work?

Let's see how the signed version fares.  I should try it myself...

Just wanted to say that I am one of those that download .zip files
exclusively. I just like the "clean old dir and unzip new content" part
when in update, and as for the explorer integration, I already have .reg
files for that. I still have not tried the installer though, part of
that may ome from me being afraid of the it putting other files that I
don't know, in some other dir, but that's just me being deluded. Also,
as Bram said, I do suspect that a large portion of that comes from scripts.
