Activity and Popularity?

How are they determined and how often are they updated? Just curious.

Odd. I'm noticing that the activity and popularity on my project went down from yesterday? Last night (and this morning) activity was up around 140, now it's down to 89.

It's been growing since the project was added, but now it looks like it's going down?

So I'm thinking this is a (semi) live thing.

When we account for activity we include Wiki edits, discussion forum posts, etc. I would suspect that you might have made a large amount of the edits when your project was created and since we only display 7 days they might be past the 7 day mark.

Okay, so what determines popularity then?

Popularity is driven by Page Hits and Downloads primarily. The current algorithm favors page hits too much and I want to do something that gives downloads a higher role in the popularity.
