You are welcome. :)

All the forges have different URL schemes so they would have to be
hardcoded somehow, e.g. SourceHut uses
https://git.sr.ht/~user/repo/archive/TAG.tar.gz, Gitea probably uses
something else, etc.. Maybe we could just clone the repo, but that
would use more bandwidth, and it could get pretty slow for big

Adding a property for the tag prefix and suffix, and a version separator
would be a good idea. Right now it only supports "v" as a prefix and
"_", ".", and "-" as separators.
