In the beginning of this year, I completely forgot the annual "state of Feedbase" post!
It has been a couple of strange years lately, so that's my excuse, and I am sticking to it.
In 2021 Feedbase got nntp-connections from 479 unique IP-address (down from 536). Of these 155 were IPv6 addresses (down from 240). However, 138 addresses only connected once (up from 113).
I wasn't the user connecting the most times, in fact I connected 2.7 times fewer times than the most connecting user, and the third most connecting user connected 2.8 fewer times than me. The number of addresses with 3 digit number of connections was 15. IPv6 and DHCP may be skewing these numbers somewhat.
At the end of 2021 there was 3.1 million articles (up from 2.3) and 159 follow ups (up from 133 last year). All the new follow ups are by me.
The number of commits stayed at 21. Most of the commits were bugfixes or
normalization improvements, however
