I sent my primary message to wikien-l but I think the issue is important
enough to warrant general awareness from the Foundation.

I have recently compiled a new statistical analysis of the English Wikipedia
independent of the "official" stats that have been offline for the last


The surprising conclusion is that the rate of article editting on the
English Wikipedia has actually been declining during the last 6 months.
