I am not even going to test that, at this point, but lets assume it works, how did you get to that path?

I start here:

They have a rad mess of a link here:

Which as you can see, as the dir path "projects" in it, which is not in your master_sites listing below, not or "files".  

The docs state to use colons, from the docs:
    When using mirror master_sites, the subdirectory ${name} is checked 
    on every mirror. If the mirror subdirectory does not match ${name}, 
    then you may specify it using after the mirror separated by a colon.

Having a developer that makes random and erratic changes to his distribution location is making this not worth it.  Changing underscores to dashes, a ridiculous versioning scheme, etc, all make it impossible for me to keep up with the daily updates they are pushing out.  Asking the developer anything about this is pointless.

You'll also want it outside of any blocks, as the user will call it anytime rather than just during build.  Note: the notes will be output during the installation automatically.
