You've done a really good job so far, Justin. I think it's just the 
nature of the thing that it's so hard to keep it always current when 
doing it manually (for the most part). The more automation we can do the 

What I'm hoping to do is to have a post-commit analyze commits for 
changes to URLs and MD5sums and then update the master ftp server 
appropriately. It should at least take of some of the edge.
