Experiment

I had come to the conclusion that the number of the subscribers to this mailing list (Apache XML Announcement list: announcements@xml.apache.org) has been on the decrease — Oct. 2003: (total 2129) to Sep. 2004: (total 1953)

On the contrary,
announcements@jakarta.apache.org — Oct. 2003: (total 5176) to Sep. 2004: (total 6599)
announce@apache.org — Oct. 2003: (total 8409) to Sep. 2004: (total 9755)

“On the Decrease” means that people (users) have not been able to reach to the appropriate information. People are not always wise enough to reach to the information which suppliers intend to lead them to.

I have been watching these for long. Nice experiment it was.
