I assume much of the material downloadable by freeciv-modpack will be in some
single location. It would be a good idea to prefill URL field with that
"default" beginning or the URL. It would give people some idea where to look
for the material. Otherwise end users would have no clue what to enter to the
URL field.

We have to decide what that default location is. I'm ready to host this at
cazfi.net, but it would definitely be a nice if someone with more time to
commit would step up.
Assuming nobody else steps up, I could host these in location like
"http://www.cazfi.net/freeciv/modinst/2.3/"; where "modinst" can be replaced
with better directory name if someone has good suggestion and 2.3 is
DATASUBDIR from fc_version. Then full URL to ancients modpack would be
Another possibility is to take advantage of the fact that meta.freeciv.org is
actually cazfi.net. Using that host name would have advantage of not being
tied to my name, but to name of the freeciv project.
"http://meta.freeciv.org/modinst/2.3/";. Full URL to ancients would be
