Subject Re: About that plugin discovery thing....

Will definitely try this out tomorrow! Super awesome!

Where is the database hosted? I remember a while ago Mike was going to look
into getting an Apache VM to host server things on. Did that come about?

One of the things we'll hugely benefit from this is getting stats on what
plugins people are installing. Is that a feature yet?

Wondering what gets hosted on the server when you "plugman publish". I'm
guessing a .tgz of your plugin... Is that right? Does it store the
plugin.xml separately from the .tgz so that metadata can be queried from it?

I don't see the README updated with any of the new features (looking here:
https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf?p=cordova-plugman.git;a=blob_plain;f=README.md;hb=plugman-registry
)
