[Python-Dev] Summary of Python tracker Issues

So by opening and closing a bug 5 times within a week, the "open" and
"close" counters both go up by 5?  That would be stupid.

Issues can't be open and closed at the same time.  There is a count of
open issues at the start of the week, and one at the end of the week.
There's a difference between those two counts which in total must sum
up to the total difference in issues.

If I understand correctly how the counters work, they at least need to
be renamed -- they do *not* count open/closed issues, they count

Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
