SBo Texlive source 404


I am trying to install texlive using sbopkg. I get this error:
Code:
Location: http://mirror.utexas.edu/ctan/systems/texlive/Source/texlive-20170520-source.tar.xz [following]
--2018-05-13 12:38:55--  http://mirror.utexas.edu/ctan/systems/texlive/Source/texlive-20170520-source.tar.xz
Resolving mirror.utexas.edu... 146.6.54.21

2018-05-13 12:38:55 ERROR 404: Not Found.
Searching the web, I find ftp://tug.org/historic/systems/texlive/2017/, which has source for -20170524- and not -20170520-. It appears this script probably requires the exact source.

sbosrcarch is a mirror of the tarballs associated to the scripts on SBo: a copy of the texlive ones is available there

It was removed from Ctan.
Ctan is probably the most reliable download location, but there is always only the current release available, which is now texlive2018.
The problem with ftp://tug.org/historic/systems/texlive/2017/ is,
that it has a low max-clients limit, so downloads often fail.

Ponce kindly fixed it on SBo git
