Where are the real downloads?

Where are the real downloads?

I'm still fighting the packager issues.

I hate to be such a pain in the behind but I'm getting 404 errors trying
to download http://shoes.heroku.com/pkg/policeman/win32/shoes (by
browser or from Shoes packager). Perhaps policeman isn't available since
we're still building policeman. Which means that to test
policeman/packaging, I should pretend to be raisins? My mind whirls how
badly I can get that wrong.

Trying for http://shoes.heroku.com/pkg/raisins/win32/shoes in the
browser gets me an html page with a single line showing:
http://cloud.github.com/downloads/i5m/shoes/latest_shoes.exe and that's 
not the same as the download page shows
http://cloud.github.com/downloads/whymirror/shoes/shoes-0.r1134-novideo.exe


I think the server should have done an http redirect (301/302), right?

Once last nit-pick worry. I package my scripts so that the user has to 
download and run
them and the package downloads Shoes. In the pack.rb code I don't see  
the new uri being encoded into the exe, dmg or .run which makes me
suspicious that the old _why sites are still in the static/stubs/*  

Thanks for your patience.
