There is a lot more that would need to go into the calculation.
- Downloads from SVN and Snapshots
- Downloads from other mirrors (includes Codetyphoon)

For Lazarus it also looks normal. end of 2011 was the RC and then 
release of So that is the spike.

IIRC around that time the layout was re-organized, to make it easier to 
find the correct download ( Win, rpm, deb, dmg...  AND latest release 
versus older release. ) IIRC it was messy before. So before that I guess 
more people needed several downloads.
