recently I've noticed serious problems in downloading some sources:
- sourceforge mirrors often give timeouts;
- some upstream projects believe to be smart changing web address from

- few of them use 'https://' so they cannot be downloaded with a simple
As soon as possible I intend to verify all package sources' availability
to have a complete view, so I can tell which are related packages.
I wonder if hosting some 'problematic' sources on slackbuilds.org (or on
another correlative website), at least, would be workable.
I suppose it is not possible to host _all_ of source files (as e.g.
Gentoo does), to maintain continuity and to prevent broken links, is it?
