I'm really sorry for holding up your release guys, the ftp repo is up to 
date for now and I've copied the svn symlinks to a 6.3 branch.  I can 
change one of the scripts to compare to the 6.3 branch files, so go 
ahead and do what you need to do.

Only files I couldn't update:
You are linking 2 different versions there, the p12 version still is a 404.

Finance Quote I've never been able to find a 1.13 version, so the repo 
still has 1.11.  All links for this are broken.

I still don't have any automated system to do updates, and have been 
pretty busy that I haven't been able to do ftp updates as often as I 
like.  Updating manually even with the help of my scripts is a total 
PITA.  If you have ideas for a better solution and would like to take 
over blfs ftp maintainer, let me know and I can get you setup with 
osuosl.  If someone takes it over, I would still gladly host the blfs 
repo on my server for you guys.  Otherwise I'll keep chugging along 
doing what I've been doing and try to update more often.
