I actually wrote about this recently and my response to the original never posted to the list because, apparently, email is hard.
Not only did your informative response of January 18 which explained
what is happening with the download counter get posted to the list and
distributed to subscribers (to me, at least), but Vincenzo quoted your
response (and Julian’s, and Noah’s) in his followup post today.
This list might benefit from an FAQ and a welcome message for newbies.
E-mail is not hard. We solved most if not all of the communications
problems seen regularly on this list decades ago on other mailing lists
and on Usenet newsgroups. There are good reasons for providing
informative subject headers, asking questions “the smart way”, trimming
your posts, and refraining from TOFU quoting.
