Naming conventions are that the tarball has the same name as the  
project-version, and extracts into a directory of that same name, i.e.:

$ tar tzvf ODTulipDriver-1.tar.gz

The build-global "source_sites" property is an array of URLs to  
search for source tarballs. The 8C46od1.plist specifies "http:// 
release.opendarwin.org/release/8.2.1/Roots/8C46od1/".  We should  
upload ODTulipDriver there.
