Allow 1.20.1 creators using Neoforge to upload forge .jars

I worked over 100 hours making a modpack for 1.20.1 that includes both fabric and forge mods using Neoforge 47.1.99 - everything works awesomely and i'm excited to share to Curseforge until their automated system declines all forge .jar files. Opened a ticket for manual review but they told me I'd basically need to scrap all my progress and move to a newer version where their policy supports this feature which is NOT viable. Why is this a thing?

Firstly, many popular mods are on 1.20.1, it doesn't make sense to the creators on your platform to enforce this policy and won't work for me.

Sinytra Connector (mod that allows forge to load fabric mods)
is a core mod used in my modpack but is stuck on 1.20.1 so i simply cannot move to a different version. In the event this feature isn't added, I'll most likely move to Modrinth since this shouldn't be a issue on their platform.

    I really hope this gets across to the right people because allowing this for newer versions but excluding the hotspot for mods ( 1.20.1 ) is just nonsense.

Hold on!
