If the sources were downloaded from somewhere, then it should be the
SourceX URL, nothing else makes sense IMHO. I know that you can create
the source archive by yourself for various reasons, but that should be
exception, not the rule ...
I'd love that, which is what COPR is already doing
(AFAIK) when you
upload a SPEC. I suggested fedorapeople space if the packager is
expected to hand the sources himself.
