Glenn Randers-Pehrson filed an issue with Anitya about updating the source URLs for libpng projects and I thought I would bring this to the packagers attention as well. Apparently upstream tarballs are now available via HTTPS (rather than FTP) at:
Or directly from GitHub tags. Apparently the old FTP system is quite overloaded and using a slow DSL connection.
This affects this package, as well as libpng10, libpng12, and libpng15. It looks like it's pretty much the same set of maintainers so I thought I'd start with just the one bug, but I'm happy to duplicate it if the maintainers wish it.
