The application has only just been released. Therefore it is not yet
available in the end-user targetted Downloads (which maps to the
Extras repository, available in Application Manager). The source is in
gitorious, not the package itself.

Some appropriate links:

  * http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=68249
  * http://maemo.org/packages/view/mediabar/

The latter shows that is currently only available in Extras-devel.
Software in Extras-devel should only be used if you are willing to
risk a reflash. General updates of packages should not be accepted
from Extras-devel if they include updates to software you require to

Once Mohammad is satisfied with the quality, he will promote it to
Extras-testing. Here, less brave users can test the application and
ensure it meets the community's QA standards. Once checked, it will
then end up in Downloads & Extras.
