Looking back on the eve of Europa's release, it's hard to quantify just how much has happened since Callisto was unleashed upon the world. No doubt there will be many metrics reported within the next few days, builds done, plug-ins created, disk footprint altered, etc., but one number caught my eye: 45585. Well, 45586, now, and still counting. Bug 149295 has the strange honor of being opened at 9AM on June 30th, 2006, the minute that Callisto was meant to be released. That's 149,294 entries in the system going from October 10, 2001 to the middle of 2006. And where do we stand now? The most recent bug I've seen opened is 194881, meaning that 45,486 entries have been added in the last year alone, and we're still going.
