Here are some statistics:
total number of uploaded files:
- .tar.gz or .tgz files: 16667
- .tar.bz2 files: 547
- .zip files: 2053
- .egg files: 10189
- .exe files: 1115
- .rpm files: 77
- .dmg files: 4
- .deb files: 1
total number of such files uploaded as source:
- .tar.gz or .tgz: 16525
- .tar.bz2: 543
- .zip: 2046
- other source files: 6
number of packages that have uploaded such source files:
- .tar.gz or .tgz: 4229
- .tar.bz2: 151
- .zip: 706
Some packages release more than one source file per release;
it's difficult to compute statistics here, because these are
sometimes just repackagings (e.g. Amara: both .tar.gz and .tar.bz2)
and sometimes different sets of sources (e.g. 4Suite-XML: both
program source, and -docs).
