------------------------------------------------------------------

I am convinced this is a blocker, because there will be a huge demand for 
Apache NetBeans 9.0 when we release it and this cannot be fixed later as we 
will never measure the activity backwards. I am tracking the statistics. But 
this is not only about some numbers. We need to keep the modularism of NetBeans 
and same mechanism for incremental updates in the future which should be in 
Apache Infra's own interest, because it's easier to download couple of updated 
modules worth several hundreds of kilobytes than downloading whole IDE with 
several hundreds of megabytes.

>             Project: NetBeans
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: website
>    Affects Versions: 9.0
>            Reporter: Jiří Kovalský
>            Priority: Blocker

> In order to keep measuring number of NetBeans active users also in the future 
> we need to create an update center similar to 8.2 NetBeans Distribution UC 
> [1] which will be hosted on Apache infrastructure and register it in the 
> NetBeans 9.0 FCS build. We are measuring this statistics since 2004 and 
> stopping it now is not an option hence this is a blocker bug for 9.0 release.
