in the meantime i keep getting requests from people who want to
download "something" from autobuild.puredata.info, e.g. because they
are using this as the canonical source for pd downloads.

e.g. Pd-extended-0.43.1(beta) is _only_ available via autobuild.p.i,
and therefore it is no longer available at all.

i think we should get a replacement for the download server asap, even
if the build-servers take a bit longer.
what are the space requirements for the autobuild webserver?

i could probably allocate some disk space at iem.
