I think much of this can be tackled by Maven plugins during the build
already. I can very well imagine tycho-p2-repository:archive-repository
learning to compress the update site with zx as well.

Same thing goes for mirror and stats URIs.

There is one common resource, however, which I would really like to be
offered by CBI: a common index.html for update sites that adheres to
eclipse.org's current theme.

At Code Recommenders we use [2] and the maven-remote-resource-plugin to
copy it into place during out builds [3]. As you can see, [2] can even
interpolate information from the POM, like ${project.name} or

Is there any interest in picking this up at CBI? I can certainly help
with the Maven-side of things (e.g., the Velocity template), but would
probably need some assistance bringing this into proper corporate-design
