You would be better off asking on the distutils list since thats where PyPI dev happens. I don't think we do much filtering, its just based on raw data from Fastly, so it includes downloads from mirrors and search bots et al.

It shows that hundreds of people have downloaded it, yet there aren't any new signups. Though it's reasonable that some of my packages would have high counts, why would three-hundred people download a client that they couldn't use without signing-up?
