The entire list of things I had to suggest to Lou - the digging around to find the file(s), the extraction hassles, the weird bintray URL, where to put the vm files.. 

Since we have automation tools it might be nice to make them build a more easily accessible package and put it in a less hidden place. I don;t like having to go down into that basement, find the disused toilet guarded by a leopard and pull stuff from a locked filing cabinet :-)

And we certainly need to document where to look and what to find.
