|[cross-project-issues-dev] Download statistics for p2 repositories?|
As you may know, Eclipse.org does not possess the ability to maintain download statistics of p2-enabled repositories. We'd like to change that for Helios.
With the Update Manager, we came up with the Single File Hack. Essentially, one JAR file representing one user download was using an absolute URL mapped to an Eclipse.org server. All other JAR files would be served from the mirror the user had selected. This hack worked quite well.
In the p2 world, I am told that the Single File Hack is still be possible, but it requires tweaking the p2 repositories. I'd like to investigate (and enable) this for the Helios repo, and document a procedure that would enable individual projects to gather download statistics should they wish to do so.
Since I'm not a p2 expert by any means, could anyone help explain how to configure a p2 repo in such a way that a single JAR file is fetched from Eclipse.org and all others from mirrors?
Thanks in advance for your help,
