The board doesn't want the artifacts sent directly to Ibiblio. They want
them placed here first by the folks in charge of the projects for
oversight and security reasons. That's what they've asked for so I said
I would try to do my part in making it happen. The artifacts are just
going to get slurped over to ibiblio anyway so the net effect for users
will hopefully be nil. People can point at the mirrors if they choose.
