Couldn't the snapd_${PV}.vendor.tar.xz available in 
work in your case to avoid downloading tarballs?
And probably consider using go-modules.eclass, which can also allow
packaging when there is no vendoring done by the upstream by just
cut(1)'ing the content of go.sum

And I'm not so sure why you want to apparently host a tarball?
Maybe you're not aware that SRC_URI accepts multiple tarballs? And 
btw you strongly should only use upstream URLs in it, they don't
need to be mirrored in distfiles.gentoo.org for the ebuild to work.
