Congratulations Martin and the Distro Team!

I highly recommend that OOTBee track download numbers for Honeycomb Edition. 
It will be useful to the Order to see the team's impact, and it would be 
useful (if you choose to share) for Alfresco to gauge the reach of Community 

Keep up the great work!
