Build script not working

Behind the curtainSince yesterday the package pybootchartgui is included in Chrome OS. Unfortunately, the download URL of that package which is accessed during the building process of the local repository (make_local_repo.sh) is wrong. Instead of http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/packages/pool/universe/p/pybootchartgui/pybootchartgui_0+r124_all.deb it has to be http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/packages/pool/main/p/pybootchartgui/pybootchartgui_0+r124_all.deb. To successfully create the local repository you have to change src/package_repo/repo_list_image.txt on line 371 accordingly.
