Using Drush Make while is down

The Drush Make utility downloads modules from during the build – but the site is currently down, which means Drush Make won’t work (and so our continuous integration has ground to a halt).

There’s a fix for general Drush usage here:

That fix changes the download url to use (which is working) instead of (which isn’t).

Unfortunately Drush Make uses it’s own download functions, so this doesn’t help..¬†Here’s my (very similar) hack to get the Drush Make downloads working..

Change line 367 in to the following:

'url'  => str_replace('ftp.', '', $release['file']),

(The file should be somewhere like /usr/share/drush/commands/drush_make)

And don’t forget to remove the hack when comes back..
