There is a reason, see:

You could use a fix URL here like:


But what if OpenSSL goes to 1.0.3, 1.0.4 and so on? Each time you would
not only have to edit the version number above but check through the

You could also add another one like
http://www.openssl.org/source/old/1.0.3/ then, leaving the old one

However you can not use the previously used full version variable in the
URL, because a path like http://www.openssl.org/source/old/1.0.2e/ is
simply not the actual path.

The reason for the split is to use the base version in the URL. You
won't have to change the URL again, just the versions above. Quite
obvious for me. ;-)
