It would be ideal if you would find a mirror of the latest upstream
source at or anywhere else.  Then you can change your recipe
to include several URLs:

    ;; …
    (uri (list "……" "……")))

Does that make sense?

When you’re ready I encourage you to follow
and send us the ‘git format-patch’-produced patch so we can incorporate it.

Thank you,
