this is an excerpt from the actual popcon dataset sorted by vote

1     perl-base                     150701
2     debianutils                   150375
10    popularity-contest        145894

this means that popularity-contest was touched/used by 145 894
installations, so they were the ones who have sent a report, as this means
that the file was touched. But then how can there be more touches on some
other packages?

probably I misunderstand these measures, so please enlighten me!

Cheers, V
