I looked up the wiki page of the package:

You can ask the Author what he did to the sources, all I can see that
he offered the source.zip to lazarus-ccr, but did not fill in a SVN or
GIT or another VCS section. The admin of Lazarus-ccr announced the
release of the source.zip on the lazarus mailing list:

So, for this package the author chose to use Lazarus-CCR only as a way
to publish his component and get a download location, but not to
maintain the sources in a VCS.

> How to make a download link for a package hosted somewhere else?

Create a new wiki page and add the link.
http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Release_new_component creates a
nice template.
