I didn't experience such a thing yet. There is a "Contact" link at the bottom of
each page through which you can reach Bintray support. In my experience, they
are helpful and react quite quickly.

Yeah, don't know either what this is for. They seem to be trying to advertise
their API-based access there.

Anyway, the way I was imagining to use this service was by having our downloads
page at uima.a.o link directly to the files on Bintray - not to the Bintray website.
So our users wouldn't see that normally. 

If we wanted to see the download numbers, we would go to the Bintray website and
look at them.
