Where perc_logged_revs shows % of bots edits over total
number of logged users edits (by month) and perc_revs shows
% of bots edits over total number of revs (by month,
including annonymous users).
The magic of numbers is that they are (most of times)

also looking at the monthly trends. Maybe my impression (and
other past graphs) are only valid for enwiki, but I begin to
