I came across this analysis earlier today & after reading it feel that I better understand what has happened & why: http://freakonomics.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/09/18/diamond-and-kashyap-on-the-recent-financial-upheavals/ A big thanks to Diamond & Kashyap for publishing this.

We are preparing to introduce the paid Silver account plans. This will compliment the existing Silver accounts, which will remain free.
We’re pleased to add another IDE to the list of officially supported direct clients RadRails – [http://www.radrails.org] Radrails is built on the Eclipse tool foundation, and as such, provides the same connectivity as Eclipse itself. Your Freepository Silver Account SVN repository may be accessed in Radrails by simply adding a new SVN Repository in the SVN Repository Exploring perspective. When prompted for the SVN URL, type in your Silver account SVN URL like this: https://svn.freepository.com/[your-account-id] This is the same URL that you will find in your admin menu when you login to Freepository.
The next major redesign of the Freepository is in the planning stage now. The focus of this release, tentatively scheduled for early May 2007, is ripping out as much of the legacy CGI as possible and replacing it with asynchronous calls to either the database or the repository server. Ajax? Yeah. But please don’t start shouting web 2.0 or any of the other silly-sexy terms being thrown around by every dime-store startup CEO that walks past.
In January, I began offering a new account type at Freepository – Silver Edition. Silver provides on-demand trac views of your subversion-managed freepository. For a limited time, Freepository Silver Edition, which provides hosted SVN and Trac, is available free of charge.
Here’s a statistic that I find very interesting: 94% of freepository’s visitors hit us with a direct URI. That is, there’s no referral. They know about freepository already, so they type in the URI. Freepository is a unique name; while it is possible some visitors simply typed it in randomly or accidently, well.. they probably meant to type it. This means that someone told them about Freepository, and they are checking it out.
This must be your lucky week. First RSS feeds, now secure WebDAV folders.
If you have wanted to keep track of your project’s progress using RSS feeds… today is your lucky day.
If you are one of our many thousands of direct-client using members (i.e. Eclipse, WinCVS, TortoiseCVS), you connect to the Freepository server via a dedicated port, aka a listener. Today we improved one of the functions that manages these listeners.
As promised, we’ve analyzed the past three months worth of direct client connections (i.e. via Eclipse, TortoiseCVS, WinCVS, our secure command line client, etc.) and have confirmed the pattern that we believed was emerging.
