Dogfooding IPFS update

I always thought it would be cool if Ipfs-update pulled the new ipfs version from ipfs if a daemon was running. There isn’t really a compelling need to do that but it would be cool from a dogfooding perspective. It would also be nice if the GitHub and ipfs distros page listed the cid’s as well. It seems a bit odd that IPFS doesn’t at least make a tip of the hat to distributing it over IPFS. I checked the CID so someone is hosting it.

@adin picking this up from Why is IPNS so slow

It already does that, falls back to http-gateway if no local daemon is running.

Oh cool. I always thought it pulled from the GitHub distro. Awesome. Thanks
