graphing is more fun when done by hand


There was no Fedora Extras for 1 and 2, which explains the large jump between 2 and 3 -- the community finally had its chance to build packages directly, and the results were tremendous.

The slight drop between 6 and 7 can be attributed to the merging of Core and Extras into a single repository, and my guess would be that at that time, some housecleaning was done and abandoned packages were purged, etc. If there is a better explanation, note it in the comments and I will update this post accordingly.
