Agreed fully. I think we cannot trust download stats at all, as many
(most?) people download qgis from OSGeo or their distro sites.
Furthermore, the prominent notice on our web site "1.0.2 is the only
good one" pushes hard downloaders towards that version.
Incidentally, I must say that having people using 1.0.2 makes also
people reporting old bugs as new ones, which makes keeping the bug queue
clean more difficult.
I repeat mysel, but I think that deprecating 1.0.2 and releasing 1.2 now
is the way to go. Please note that we only have 9 critical bugs open
now, the lowest number since ages.
All the best.
