 In any case , we should be prepared for situations like recent t-h.o
 outage .

 skip over it if unavailable?

 Not a fatal problem thanks to [
 unofficial t-h.o mirror at Bitbucket].

 > Could either the installer or the docs provide some more help about what
 to do in the event of problems? And is there a workaround for now?

 I'll document what I did in order to work around this particular problem,
 at least as long as hacks site is down. Firstly I created
 [ a clone] of aforementioned
 repository and checked out source code for [http://trac- AccountManagerPlugin] located at
 accountmanagerplugin/0.11] subfolder. Then I had to add the following
 '''' file ...

 graft acct_mgr/htdocs
 graft acct_mgr/locale
 graft acct_mgr/templates

 ... in order to build correct source tarball by executing the following


 $ python sdist --formats=gztar


 I followed similar steps for
 themeengineplugin] and
 permredirectplugin] subfolders ('''' file not needed in these
 cases). The resulting ''sdist'' packages have been uploaded to
 [ downloads area]
 for that repository.

 That's the philosophical explanation ...
