​I got on HipChat a while ago and all that was suggested was we use "https"
instead of "http" to SourceForge. But, given that my little stripped down
download script worked fine without this, I doubt this is it.
I didn't ask about filled up disk and perhaps I should have.  :(

​We COULD get around this but just using the sources already in our trunk
and changing the SVN call to that to just a file URL for the time being,
and referencing that as URL1 for these, but I guess that might be
considered  bad.​ We don't distribute these with the source and we would
need to remember to change this back for a release. But just a thought.
