I wouldn't mind to use it, but it seems JBoss.org prefered way is downloads.jboss.org (covers downloads statistics, etc.).
We can use it for Widgets releases though.
Good point. We could open an ORG issue asking for somr kind of integration. Maybe GitHub has an API providing download statistics?
I have asked GitHub Help, so let's see what are possibilities.
But even though we could see total download numbers for particular artifacts, it's still interesting to see # of downloads in time.
