Hello all,

I realize there is a freeze, but I want to ask for my own reference.
And then once 14.2 comes out I would try to submit this unless someone
has already done so.

I have not done one of these in years, and I am running into the
github download problem.  In the info file I have it like this:


And then in the SBo script I have it like this:

tar xvf $CWD/v0.9.tar.gz

I tried the advice from a previous email and here is how it looks.

wget https://github.com/koct9i/ioping/archive/0.9/ioping-0.9.tar.gz

Resolving github.com (github.com)...

Was my workaround an acceptable way to handle the situation?  Any
help/advice is appreciated.
