Drush make fails to get latest release despite repeated cache clears

This was for quite an old version of drush— Drush 5.4

Happily there’s an old issue to light the way:


dr fixed it.

(I’m using such an old version of Drush for the old and barely maintained Cultura project. It’s really cool though, anyone want something like that, please contact Agaric!)

update drupal 7 install profile
how to update drupal.org makefile

Downloading https://www.drupal.org/project/drupalorg_drush didn’t work so i used composer to get another version of Drush just for this.
