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.

Best regards,
