It would be great to have a better visibility of  what package are the 
most used by users.
It would be usefull for users, and specially new users, to know what are 
the most popular package and for developers too given some hints for 
futur development.
As far as I know there are no easy way to find them.

Top Project Download section on garage web page could have been a good 
start point but :
- is Katix-EFIS project really that popular ? Sorry Karollina but no it 
is not.
  (link to screenshots explain the wrong first position, Gforge provide 
dedicated section for screenshot to avoid that)
- package installed from maemo's extra repository are not  counted (Right ?)
- there is many other repositories with greats packages

It would be nice to have something like Debian Popularity Contest
or Ubuntu Popularity Contest
or even better to have something a little more friendly for end users.

I could port popularity-contest package to Maemo but any other ideas are 
I guess that Nokia people are also interested to know what the nokia 770 
is used for so maybe something is already planned.
