It is not a commit message to be precise, just the text I put into the
email.  And my patch does indeed add snapshot URLs for all the listed

False, read the text and stop trolling already.  First you start a
silly commit war with Carl Eugen as proxy, now you flame when I make
an effort to be constructive.
