-1 on using a prepackaged combination of the dependencies.

It is only simpler locally, not globally.

That is just moving the pea, and it means there is now an external activity that committers
must understand and someone has to maintain when there are updates, security patches, etc.,
to the dependencies.  It also raises provenance issues.  (I note that none of the sources
have hashes or signatures already, or else I missed them, and they include a variety of .exe
files.)

If we are concerned about obsolescence or inaccessibility of the sources, there might need
to be a backup arrangement.  That might be a better use of Apache Extras.

@dennis thanks fir all your investigation work.
+1 to having the prepared files at uxproductivity (and later apache extras)
and then use the script from dennis to fetch is.
