you mean my packages repository? but that is for my personal use only. :-)
maybe you missed when it happened but I stated many times that if
anybody would like to use it either they solve dependencies with the
ones listed on SBo or use the repository as a whole: I don't provide
dependency resolution for it. ;-)
if instead you mean the script on git the webkitgtk.info file is the
same as on SBo.

regarding linking the tarball patches from debian it happened many
times in the past that the versioned tarball linked had been removed
fom their repository, breaking the download: that's the main reason
why I would prefer them to be included with the script.
