The allinone RPMs were not analyzed at this time, since installing this RPM is a choice made during the installation process itself. Tracking the Engine Reports and dwh RPMs was done to determine the popularity of these two tools and to ensure their numbers were comparable.

Key files for Engine, Engine Reports, and Engine dwh were identified and the data filtered to include counts for each one of the files, in whatever version released.

You should know that since we now have a mirrorlist (which in terms of
hit count is already in the top 3) the number could be much lower than
the actual RPM downloads. I'd be interested how much traffic is served
by mirrors.
