Thank you, this problem is known to me, unfortunately it seems to
be a nasty cycling attitude for some upstream developers :-//

3.65 should be built without modification, as well. Anyway I was
waiting for a green light from SBo admins, in order to upgrade scripts
for 13.1. Personally I would intend to wait for official submissions'
reopening before causing too much hassle and pressure to admins.

As I see some maintainers already sending some corrections via ML, I
would like to know if we (as maintainers) are supposed to send _now_
modifications, corrections or upgrades, instead.

OTOH, admins,
 how viable could be a global modification to .info files in order to
 add an (optional for maintainers) fallback alternative way for a source
 file's download link, if main link somehow gets failed?


#personal source repository or taken from other distro repository, just
in case

But I don't know how much work it needs to be implemented in support
programs such as sbopkg etc..

Best regards.
