Hi Jukka,

I'm open to suggestions for its location (but I remember from one of the 
releases, this url was even hardcoded in an error message inside the 
source code, if my memory is correct, so changing it will have some 
additional impacts that we must catch).

update: it is in mapfile.c & mapserv-config.cpp
