Sorry, I don't understand what you mean here.  The problem with an
unversioned source is the following: once the source is updated in
place, its hash is changed and our package could not be built anymore.

fixes) between these 2 years:

I vote for using the emacsorphanage source (either git-fetch or using
the latest release are fine for me).

Jonas Bernoulli is "tarsius" on github.  He is the person who makes a
lot of cool stuff in the Emacs world (like emacsmirror, emacsorphanage
and magit).  I wouldn't bother him about making the new release just for
2 insignificant commits in the repo.

Just for the info, there was an interesting message by tarsius related
to Emacsmirror (orphanage) and Emacswiki:
