Yes, the way via .d.o hosts it is.

Thomas plans to provide a similar overview as we have for NEW
packages. We could enable that to have links to the files itself.
Only problem is - if someone goes and uploads a NEW package there it
would get us in trouble, as we would distribute it before it got its
inspection if we really can do that. So if that ever happens it needs
some extra code to look if its valid to give links or not.
