[webkit-dev] Hosting precompiled `jsc` binaries for Linux

Thank you, Lucas.

I did come across those links while looking into this but it not being
publicly accessible is a show-stopper.

Also, I’d feel better about using builds that are hosted somewhere
official, under Apple’s direct control, at least for the purposes of an
installer tool such as *jsvu*.

Apple already does this for some Windows builds, and macOS builds are
available through nightly.webkit.org. Can’t we get the same for Linux?
