Yeah I was planning on that, but it doesn't affect me as much yet since I already have the 2.8 source downloaded before Paul Davis decided on this new distribution method. However, it will keep the package in [extra] from being updated.
And that made my day too..I should browse the forums on a regular basis again =/
It's still possible to download the source tarball without donation, but not automatically (you might need this next week for 2.8.1). I doubt he'll provide us with a direct link to the source tarball because this would ruin his system (eg. forcing people to go through his donation dialogue).
I'll ask him if I should add some post install message to my package.
In the meanwhile my package (hopefully) works by checking out the svn repository by tag.
