The data: Adium's update notification / downloading framework is  
SparklePlus; the "Plus" part of this fork of the Sparkle project is  
that it has anonymous, user-optional submission of usage data.  If  
the user agrees to it being sent, the "are updates available?" check  
goes through a php script which receives provided information and  
then redirects to the actual version checking information, an RSS  

The graphs: The graphs are generated by php scripts written by the  
Adium webmaster, Zac West.  He released all the code involved under  
the new BSD license; it can be browsed via Trac at http:// and checked out via subversion at
