Can we glean from the access logs on wordpress.orgWordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ the number of times the nightly build has been downloaded? If it can be broken up by day (or some other over-time grouping) going as far back as is reasonably feasible, that would be great.
The nightly build is located at https://wordpress.org/nightly-builds/wordpress-latest.zip.
We are planning to release 3.5 tomorrow, so if it is possible for this to be done today, it would be appreciated, as it could inform us of our next steps.
Perhaps we can/should send that link through dl.php and do stats tracking on it, once 3.5 is over.
