Download stats of all packages?

Hi, I’m interested whether there is a way to get APT repo download stats of all packages, not just the few top packages mentioned on metrics.ros.org. I know this has been discussed before (Data on most popular ROS packages), but with no resolution. @DLu managed to put together the full report once, so I wonder if it’s possible to reproduce it on newer data. I know there are several mirrors out of control of Open Robotics, but even stats from the main APT repo would be interesting.

I’m not sure whether e.g. crawling data like Statistics for packages.ros.org (2022-02) - urldetail would lead to the correct numbers. I’d expect that when a package is updated, there should be at least as many downloads as there are mirrors, but I found packages where this doesn’t hold, so I’m confused about what these numbers mean…

The full report was a result of crawling and parsing the OSU data. It’s by no means a perfect measure of overall usage, but I believe it to be an accurate measurement of downloads.
