SF makes the latest snapshot available to project administrators.  I
could give you the URL but I don't think you can see them.  So there's
no need to run anything on SF, I think.

BTW, I don't think the date (May 1st) correlated to our furniture
move.  I dunno *what* happened on May 2nd, nor who makes the tar
copies (I thought it was Barry?).
