It does look like someone mirrors it on GitHub. They don't tag the
releases, and I'm not sure if it'll continue to sync when new tags are
pushed on their other git instance, but it could be used to grab a tarball.


Another option would be to just download the file using where and the above
link (it'll still download the tarball, it'll just have an ugly name --
although, this test was done on a non-Slackware system that had wget --
looks like Debian 8), add a test in the slackbuild to see if there's an
index.html file in the folder and then move it to the expected filename and
continue on with the script.

Something like:

if ls index.html*.tgz; then
mv index.html*.tgz $PRGNAM-$VERSION.tar.gz

But I don't know if that method would be frowned on by SBo admins (if the
wget does actually download the file, but has an ugly name)
