So, I was tired of only getting 4kb/sec when I used Red Carpet, so I threw together a quick Python script which grabs the latest snapshot from the Ximian ftp site.
Of course, I wanted to get a Rube Goldberg-ish as possible so I'm reading the packageinfo.xml.gz file and then walking through the xml to get the correct filenames. Then I download those.
I think I'll use some of the rpm bindings for Python to automatically install the rpms as well... Hmm.. That would be fun..
I'll post the script when I'm done but if you want to see it earlier, just drop me a line.
