Since March we've been tracking download stats for various plugins, and 
it seemed like as good a time as any to expose them:


Since most people don't use our download system yet, here's an example 
of one that has used it since launch:


Here's one that got a lot of downloads when I blogged it and then since 
I haven't promoted or linked it anywhere has trailed off:


As we build out an official plugin directory on wp.org, this data will 
be used in that somehow, so if you're a plugin author consider using 
downloads.wordpress.org for your official download URL.

Any other ideas for stuff we could expose?
