I think that we should rely on Richard's blog post, which provides
detailed statistics. I believe there is more value in the detailed
statistics, for data a few days old, than in the two numbers we collect
from udd, which anyway risk to differ from the value the readers could
get from the same query, because of the volatility of the number of
bugs. We could mention explicitly that the numbers from Richard's post
give the status for (the end of) a particular week, a point the readers
to the UDD link if they want current values.
