Make the Maven repository more visible/flexible
According to https://authors.curseforge.com/docs/api there is a maven repository that automatically hosts uploaded files, which is cool. I've gotten it to work so long as projects conform exactly to the pattern described in the article.
However, if a project deviates from this pattern, either the maven entries aren't generated or are extremely obscure.
Expected maven link: projecte:ProjectE-1.12.2:PE1.4.0
Result: Does not work, likely because the version number is prefixed with "PE"
Expected maven link: better-builders-wands:BetterBuildersWands-1.12.2:0.13.0.267+dc89c58
Result: Does not work, probably because of that git tag. However, adding ":dev" to the end does work, to request the sub-file.
Expected maven link: journeymap:journeymap-1.12.2:5.5.3
Result: Doesn't work, but I don't know why

A simple solution would be to automatically generate that the string and add it to the project page somewhere to take the guesswork out.
