Thank you so much, andyj. This is exactly what I was hoping to get my hands on. Given that rebuilding the metadata files on the official repo must be a common operation, I figured the devs would have a shell script with these commands right at their fingertips.

I copied your post, just in case it gets censored ;)

Hi GNUser
... I figured the devs would have a shell script with these commands right at their fingertips. ...
... The server scripts aren't public currently.
It's possible the scripts contain information about the server (paths, variable definitions, etc.) that they don't want made public.

Maybe you meant censored? Anyway, there's no reason for it to get censored.

Yes, I meant "censored" as a joke. Sorry, English is my second language :-[ I fixed it.

It wasn't a criticism. I had to look it up because I didn't know if it was an alternate spelling (gray vs grey) or a different meaning.

By the way, other than you saying so, there is no indication that English is your second language. ;D

Thank you, you made my day. Words are important (especially in a place like this forum where we are known only by our words), so I try to use them carefully :)

You guys are the best. Thanks for all your help.

Right, the data files aren't complex or the scripts have any top-secret things, it's just a matter of little interest in them and nobody having gone over what can be released. Server paths etc should be kept private.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

That's totally reasonable. At first I thought it was the know-how that was being withheld, which is why I reacted poorly. I'm sorry.
