#7283 closed feature request (wontfix)

Patch version support in the stats endpoint

Description

It would be wonderful if the plugin stats api endpoint (/stats/plugin/1.0) included data for patch versions – so I could see better breakdowns of my plugin usage.

For example, if I release a security patch, it could be vital to know how many people received that patch.

Current result: (https://api.wordpress.org/stats/plugin/1.0/?slug=hello-dolly)

{
  "1.6": 11.42,
  "1.7": 88.42,
  "other": 0.16
}

Suggested result:

{
  "1.6.8": 11.42,
  "1.7.0": 10,
  "1.7.1": 20,
  "1.7.2": 58.42,
  "other": 0.16
}

No. Including this information will only make it more likely for plugin authors to adjust their versioning strategy to get more precise information and further violate user privacy.
