There are over 100,000 successful installs/month of Eclipse-based products via the Eclipse Marketplace client. We have a list of the most popular plugins over the last 30 days and all time.

But where is SVN? 
SVN with Maven should be inside Eclipse!

 Not JBoss Tools? Not ADT ? Weird. How much plugins are installed via Marketplace? How much plugin are installed outside marketplace? Maybe that can explain it.
