Right now it is the "defaults" effect, because Debian stable is included in
the report.  We don't have a "testing + unstable" report.

"Statistics per popularity-contest releases" gives you an approximate
breakdown of what is in the "all" report, I think.

We will only have decent data on this about six months after jessie becomes
stable.  But it will be useful nonetheless.

Being able to filter reports to consider only those from testing+unstable
might make it more useful at the shorter term, though.
