Did you by chance watch the video I hosted here?
On minute 7 I download these in the video (it is too long and boring so I doubt you've seen it :-). I will do a new one when the gradle stuff is ready to go that is hopefully a 30 second video!). I'll also update the wiki with a link to the web page.
