I would prefer having the artifacts on ASF servers. A (Nexus based)
repository is at https://repository.apache.org/
Ant + Ivy are available at
https://repository.apache.org/content/repositories/releases/

Not sure about getting statistics from Nexus. But should be possible ...
(maybe we have to ask #infra)

Are you writing the markdown by hand or do you generate that from java
source?

On BinTray the tables are broken.
No syntax highlighting on BT?

Git support is growing at ASF, e.g. Camel is on the migration path from svn
to git.
A "blocker" to their vote is
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-6197
