Popularity of Python packages in Debian: High !


Ara is an advanced search engine for Debian packages developped in theEDOS project (of which we are also taking part).

Out of curiosity, I checked today how many Debian packages were implemented in Python (this is one of the metadata that are searchable using Ara).

The result is: many! Python is a close second behind C, and way ahead other languages (including some who are supposed to eat Python for breakfast!).

(Warning1: these results depend on metadata that may not have been set up correctly for every package. Warning2: these number will obviously change over the time.)
