Best practices for setting up an update site

We haven’t distributed any plug-ins or components via an update site but what are your best practices or where can I find them on the web?

The only related topic I could easily find is this one.

Questions of interest is:

  • how to handle versioning?
  • how to collect statistics? (who has installed what, how many products have been installed)
  • how to connect an installation of a product to a billing system?

Thanks in advance for your guidance!
