Hi Jason,

The scripts are available here:

Please note that these won't work with current git master, due to the
recently added plugin support (more specifically, the files that are
generated are correct, just the paths are wrong).

It will work with Bro 2.3, though. Updating this to work with master is on
my todo list.
