Ok, more update feeds to see attached to:

using the script which is AWESOME! Please not the script uses
today's date, Nov.5, and not our release date of Oct. 28. This is
just a comment, so if we want to change all these to Oct.28, we can
do this.

I fixed up the localized download areas which is an input file to
the script, so hopefully we're good on that now.

So, once we get a FINAL (hopefully!) review, I will copy these over
to where they need to go an commit. The 4.1.1 -> 4.1.2 we have
already committed is OK.
