That is wrong. It's trying to download the tar ball from meta-comm. I
changed the script a few weeks ago to get the tar balls directly from
the SVN server (before I went on vacation 8/27). And posted a message
telling testers to update the script (since the automatic
update of the script was never fixed by meta-comm -- and I have no clue
how to fix that part yet).

When I do it manually I get:

-bash-3.00$ python get-source
# Getting sources (2007-09-15T16:23:15Z)...
# Downloading "" to
# Looking for old unpacked archives...
# Unpacking boost tarball
# Unpacked into directory
# Deleting "/home/grafik/devroots/testing/boost" directory...
# Renaming
"/home/grafik/devroots/testing/boost-trunk-2007-09-15-12-23-15-EDT" into

So I guess I need to post a more forceful message. And we need to fix
the auto-update :-( Hm... Or maybe I can make obsolete the auto-update.
