|[eclipse.org-committers] Kepler: enabling download stats and using mirrors|
The Eclipse Foundation provides a mechanism to gather download
statistics for your project's downloadable files. Since there are
typically two ways for users to download your bits, stats must be
"enabled" in two locations:|
If you're using the Find a Mirror script, thank you. Downloads are automatically counted for your zip files. Please see: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Project_Download_Stats
If you are linking directly to http://download.eclipse.org, please don't. Our downloads area is mirrored worldwide to reduce our bandwidth usage and provide a faster download for your users. Please see the above link for the proper way to link to your ZIP files.
From p2 repos
Your p2 repos should also use mirrors -- this is not enabled by default. Please use mirrors: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox/p2/p2.mirrorsURL
To enable stats tracking, two properties must be defined in your repo. Please see: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_download_stats
If stats are enabled in your p2 repos, they will also be available from the Juno/Kepler aggregate repos if your projects are included.
Querying the database
Only Eclipse committers can query the database. Log into the MyFoundation portal (http://portal.eclipse.org/) using your Committer ID and use the [tools] for all Committers option of the Eclipse Projects portlet.
If you're a release engineer, or if you participate in the annual Simultaneous release, your presence on the Cross-Project mailing list is highly recommended: https://dev.eclipse.org/mailman/listinfo/cross-project-issues-dev
If you have any questions regarding download stats or proper usage of downloads/mirrors, please don't hesitate to ask us at webmaster@xxxxxxxxxxx.
