Re: mega-20200515 %sysbuild_git% missing

Ahh, i looked thru the release notes after unzipping the file. Now that I go to the down loads oage I do see it there.

I have an automatic download setup so I never actually go to the download page. But I figure it can't hurt to make it known in case it was missed. 8-)
