That's only if someone does upload the tarball to alioth. For me, it takes 2 
or more hours to upload files that are 100MB or more, and that's when doing 
an upload overnight.

For this reason, I wanted to supply a get-orig-source or something similar 
that does this. It's also a reason why I wanted svn-buildpackage to be able 
to run "debian/rules get-orig-source" (or any other script and options for 
that matter) just like how svn-buildpackage supports downloading an orig 
tarball. I'm sure the Games Team (and anyone) could benefit from this. I did 
submit a patch for this by the way, it's at http://bugs.debian.org/458508.
