--- Comment #6 from Nicolas Mailhot <nicolas.mailhot(a)laposte.net> ---
URL is not mandatory. Some very old components in Linux systems antedate the
web, and were published on long dead (not http) forums. The corresponding
archive in Fedora dist-git has no URL. (I was the maintainer of such a package
in Fedora before relinquishing it. IIRC the package has since been dropped, but
its makes you realise Fedora can carry things long after their upstream has
vanished as long as the result works and someone is ready to look at problems).
Another example in the distro is PT Sans. It was commissioned (paid for) by the
Russian Federation, so for a little stretch of time the foundry was motivated
to be nice to the general public, and they published a version with correct OFL
metadata on a web forum when the public asked. Unfortunately, they didn't fix
the version on their main web site, which carries the usual freeware (not
freedomware) licensing info. Now that the web forum has been EOL-ed, and public
money has dried up, there is no upstream URL to download OFL PT Sans from
