There are some more numbers to get a more real impressions of the numbers:

1. The list of mirrors are fetched 43045 times  (by counting the 
download number of mirror.list from
2. people selected releases **9297 times from (by 
counting the number of fetched config.txt files)
3. from this 9297 times there are
     3.1. 473 nightly release selection
     3.2. 8621 stable release selection
     3.3. 85 unstable release selection

from 1. and 2. we can calculate the number of release selections outside, which is 33748 (= 78%)

With this numbers we can get a better estimate of the lower bound for 
downloads from other server

- 78% percent of installations are fetched outside of
- from there are downloaded 30.000 files a day
-> there are estimated 109.000 files a day from other servers (assuming 
people downloads the same packages as from
-> in all there must be a minimum of about 140.000 packages downloaded 
from all server,

.. to be continued
