We could make our own versioning, couldn't we?  Like in (guix-edit

Melpa people pull all from master.  Their sr-speedbar version is
20161025.131, but their release tarball version from which they pull is

So, I see two solutions: add a comment “There is no versioned source.”
like in (guix-edit "emacs-goto-chg") or pull from github git commit. doesn't have Issue tab. doesn't have any
contact info except author name.  The only way for me to ask a developer
a new release tarball is find another repository with opened Issue tab.

What do you think?
