Ticket #10825 (closed: wontfix)
Beta downloads stats do not consider deleted files
|Reported by:||fhaag||Owned by:||hinojosa|
Downloads of removed files do not show up in the new beta downloads stats. IMHO they should, as downloads of deleted files in a project are significant downloads just as those of still existing files.
Regular version (expected result):
Time period: Last 2 months
Beta version (actual result):
Date range: 2010-03-06 to 2010-05-06
Old download files in that project were deleted on 2010-05-05, new ones were uploaded at the same day. All the former downloads seen in the regular version were downloads of the old files.
Rationale for my considering this a problem:
That particular project is a collection of many files. Every release contains all the files from previous releases and some new ones, i.e. every release is a superset of previous releases. Keeping old release files seems like a waste of space in this case.
