ActiveState PPM index + download stats

ActiveState have updated their PPM index page:

As reported

It is interesting to see which are the popular downloads and as an author the number of downloads of your own modules. They also have a nice chart of which OS's the module has been built for.

Not so sure that the example in the article - DBD::Mysql Failing on OSX - is such a good showcase! (looking at the report just seemed that mysql_config wasn't in the build servers path or something, so a setup issue, not a module issue).

But that aside it's interesting to see how far PPM seems to have come.
