What is a "referral link"? Is the link

These two links give the same file.

Thus, I don't understand

1. Why the source from upstream is better then the github source
(discussed above in this thread) if they are identical?

2. Why the SlackBuild uses the link
which is obviously valid for the "latest" release only.

3. Why the SlackBuild suggests version 2018.07.04 instead of 2018.07.10?

Best regards,
