Pre-populate SFS .png and .specs files

April 16, 2023 — BarryK

The first time that you run 'SFSget', there is a delay of several minutes, while .png and .specs files are downloaded. These correspond to each SFS file available online and provide image and information in the GUI.

A few people have asked if this delay could be shortened. Yes, it can. Those files go into /mnt/wkg/sfs, and now the '3buildeasydistro' script in woofQ will pre-populate that path with the .png and .specs files, so they don't have to be downloaded.

woofQ commit at github:

Already have a lot on the to-do list, but will go a bit slow the next few days.
