I do have an idea, why not along side the download like mysql site has it
it asks you if you want to register on their site, or continue to the
download, why dont we do something similar to that where it will show and
ask the user if they would like to donate offering them the appropriate
options if not they can go directly to the download.

I absolutely hate it.
This might work when there would only be one single download, as since
lanugagepacks and/or help are separate, leaving the dowload page just
is a slap into the face of the user/me.

agreed, the fact that usually we have several downloads for users speaks
against the concept - didn't have that on my mind, but you are right.

Sadly, I see no real way of doing this nicely. We can open up a new
window, so the initial download offer is in one tab/window, and the
donate+download page in a second, so users could easily switch. But then,
people often dislike if new windows are opened.

I have no real solution to that, agreed. I'd like to give it a try to see
if it really brings massive improvements or not. When we see the outcome,
we can still decide what to do. The current way is nothing I'd like to
enforce, it's just a try, because we've been hearing quite often that "ask
for donation while the download runs" would bring massive improvements, and
other projects do this as well.
