Sorry, a small messup that has been fixed. The files should appear again

And why can't you use download.kde.org for that? I think it is fine to add 
smallish patches to our sources to be able to keep them compiling. And if you 
regularly track the weekly snapshots of KDE 4.1, you should come close to a 
state where you can just semi-automatically build the new snapshot without 
any additional patch needed.

My idea would be: work together, help ensure that the weekly snapshots are in 
a good state, package them and provide them via download.kde.org. If you run 
into a problem, tell us about it instead of trying to do your own thing.
