> Dear friends,
> 
> Some feedback about the registration of pgAdmin III on 
> freeware/shareware sites:
> 
> 1) Visibility
> 
> pgAdmin was registered manualy on 60 sites.
> 
> Thanks to the PAD file 
> (http://www.pgadmin.org/pgadmin3/cnt/pgadmin3.xml),
> pgAdmin is slowly being published on shareware sites automatically.
> 
> Examples:
> http://www.fileheaven.com/pgAdmin-III-for-PostgreSQL/download/
> 12418.htm
> http://downloads.verzamelgids.nl/
> etc...
> 
> As a result, if you connect to Google and enter 'pgadmin', 
> you can notice 49 pages of answers. 
> 
> 2) Impact
> 
> The impact of shareware sites is not clear. Very few of them 
> publish downloading statistics. Only the most interesting 
> sites publish information.
> 
> Example:
> http://telecharger.01net.com/windows/Programmation/base_de_don
> ne/fiches/28430.html
> 50 downloads / week
> 
> 3) Strategy
> 
> These figures are relatively low compared to the impact of 
> the inclusion of pgAdmin III in Debian or in the main 
> GNU/Linux distributions. We should be looking very hard in 
> these directions... (they have millions of users).
> 
> Still, if you visit a freeware / shareware site with good 
> downloading statistics, do not hesitate to register pgAdmin III.
