[LDM #KJF-988774]: Ack 'versions' file is now missing on the LDM download repo

Hi Stephen,

The GitHub repository is for development: releases are *not* made there.

I'm working on the "version.texi" thing.

> 's/\.tar.*$//' | grep -q "^${ldm_ver}$"; then

> { rc=$? ; echo "Curl to get LDM versions failed, aborting..."; exit ${rc} ;}
> exit 1
