Yah... I was pretty surprised. I counted unique IPs from the access logs
like so:

[svn@svn httpd]$ awk '{print $1}' access_log* | sort -u | wc -l

But then Fitz and I figured that would include people who just happen to
smack the site for one reason or another, rather than actual checkouts of
the repository. So I decided that anything which does a PROPFIND is a user
of the repository (altho this picks up WebDAV mounts):

[svn@svn httpd]$ awk '/PROPFIND/ {print $1}' access_log* | sort -u | wc -l

Of course, these numbers are quite rough. It doesn't account for dynamic
IPs, and it doesn't account for IP-aggregation via NAT or proxies. And
people who use a plain old browser on the repository *could* be called read
only users, so should they be counted?


The simple fact is that, no matter how you want to slice the numbers, it is
quite easy to say "oh yah, we have more than 1000 users directly interacting
with the repository."
