Unfortunately the builder is broken at the moment.  I'm almost
overwhelmed trying to hack the documentation makefiles for the new
website and doc reorganization, and in any case it's a bit
difficult to do lots of work a server halfway across the world.

If anybody wants to investigate, here's the issues:

There's actually a third issue; the scripts currently can't handle
uploading a release with a build version number.  But I can avoid
that by not including a build number (so it would be 2.13.4-0
rather than -1 or -2), so I don't consider this an important
problem.  I also made a really ugly patch to fix it, but it's so
ugly that I'd rather use -0 instead.

I'm hopeful that when I get to Glasgow, I'll get a desktop in my
supervisor's computing lab, so I would be able to investigate
locally.  That'll be the second week of Sep.
