> URL needs to be updated

As the main developper of MellowPlayer I know I've moved to gitlab. I
haven't updated the upstream url yet because it is not important and I have
better things to do. I will fix it next time there is a valuable change to
the package to be done (e.g. a new version or a fix for the broken optional
dependency). Forcing a recompilation to all users just because of a change
in the upstream URL seems ridiculous.

> and a broken dependency need to be fixed for two months already.

The broken dependency is an OPTIONAL dependency that was reported a month
ago. I am still looking for a suitable replacement. If you want to help,
please check if chromium-widevine could fill the gap.

In short don't freak out because there were no updates. I do have stuff to
do IRL and the reported issues seems far less important. AFAIK the package
still builds fine.
