Is there any software or website that allows the user to view a graph of how popular a particular package is? The popcon.ubuntu.com site has raw information on how many people
(who have installed popularity-contest) have installed a particular package, but it would be interesting to see how a package's popularity changes over time.

I remember using a website that graphed this, but I don't know if it still exist.



Popcon² is a website for viewing and analyzing Ubuntu's user-submitted package statistics.

Update: The site is down since 2014. There is a copy on archive.org.

I've found this for Debian at http://qa.debian.org/popcon.php

For example cmatrix packages: https://qa.debian.org/popcon.php?package=cmatrix

Edit: Here's a bug with a solution.


There is also www.lesbonscomptes.com/upopcon/ and ubuntu-popcon.43-1.org/

The first one has more display options and data for a longer period (disclosure: its mine...)
