Bukkit niet meer te downloaden?! Informatie hier!

Beste lezers,
Vanmorgen had ik (na vele berichten hierover binnen gekregen te hebben) vernomen dat alle downloads van (Craft)Bukkit niet meer te downloaden zijn. Dit in verband met een DCMA Takedown. Volledige bron hier.
Zover we nu kunnen zien, zou het betekenen dat we voor een onbepaalde tijd geen builds meer kunnen downloaden. Het gebeurde zo plots, dat we dus niet weten hoe snel hier dingen gaan veranderen. Als we meer weten, zullen we jullie op de hoogte houden.
