  • I'm not confinced this would make a good surface plot. Despite the way it's presented as a two-dimensional histogram, it's really only one time line and the amount of data. So what's wrong with a simple 2D plot (except the following one is ugly)? http://steffen-mueller.net/tmp/cpanuploads.png [steffen-mueller.net]
    • Well, I also want to see yearly cycles, and look at slices like "December". People can make all sorts of graphs though.

      Note that your graph is really "Age of distros in MiniCPAN", not CPAN Uploads. The only things there are the lastest ditros, which is why January 2008 has such a big spike. :)
      • Yeah; to me it's really cool that 8.2% of CPAN by size has been released or revised in the last month. And 38.8% of it within the last year. Most modules people are running are something that is new and fairly recently looked at, especially if it has a good test suite. :)

        Of course, I'm really curious what the gigantic distribution is in September 1997 that hasn't been touched in the last ten years.
