Hmmm, you develop the **upstream** code at salsa?  That's very unusual
and I wonder whether this is a good idea.  Usually upstream goes to
gitlab / github / whatever and we fetch the source tarball from there.

I can not see any reason why using salsa is really a bad idea for
upstream - I have never seen this before and its just a gut feeling.
In any case it is definitely not a good idea if the homepage of
beads does not point to the latest source.  Could you please fix this?

Kind regards
