Aloha Boris,

The error is "not found" on server for the 2007 version.

The above line is what should work. But it doesnt. There is a false old 
version in the port list from the update on the server. This is 
apparently a known issue as there are two (2) PR's with this issue 
reported in the last few days.

If someone on our list knows the maintainer I think it could be 
corrected easily. It may be an upgrade that failed to take as the two 
versions are 2004 and 2007. I think 2007 should be there now.
