As was mentioned, it's only on my branch which is like 2.1 with various
bits added.  My directory on mediacast1.com/~karl was out of action for
a while, looks to be down to a HD failure, but is up now.

you can also access SVN at 


On a related note, in svn I have merged the 2 modules previously
mentioned so that the --enable-vorbis-updates switch is longer needed
now. The merge is new so I could of broken something but so far things
look fine, if you want the stream rebuilding to occur (which includes
the URL updates) then add  <ogg-rebuild>1</ogg-rebuild> to the
appropriate <mount>
