> why not keep main site as fallback?

GH likely has better bandwidth and uptime; I don't see the need to keep
yt-dl.org. Hostmaster ignores mail, so if the website is down, it would
likely remain down longer than any possible GH outage. I think it would
not hurt to have yt-dl.org as a fallback, attached v2 after your review.

A better solution would be to mirror the distfile at distcache.FreeBSD.org,
which has AAAA RR without the need of DNS64/NAT64. I think only a committer
can do that.

> Stick do DISTVERSION everywhere rather than mixing PORT and DISTVERSION

Right, I wanted to minimize the amount of change, so a maintainer is more
likely to approve the patch. V2 changes more as you suggested.

Thanks for review.
