Yep, upgrades will be downloads. A number of packages on there are used
for integration testing. So, I pull down dash on every checking for
several of my projects. In time, I am sure dash will become the most
downloaded package because of this.

Once Emacs switches to git, I would guess the percentage of people on
this list who do not install magit will shrink to a tiny number. My
guesses are often wrong though!
