No matter which URL takes me to Google Play (the Android app marketplace), the donations always end up being altruistic. In theory, the Referer URL seen by Google Play should determine the user account the donations go to.

I've had some success fixing this. Specifically, I have it now so that if installed directly from a android device then the donation is properly indicated with "donation: username" at install time.

If it is installed remotely through Google play from a PC, then it is incorrectly granted as altruistic. This can be seen on the beta clearinghouse. The remote link is the android picture. This can be "fixed" by just removing this remote install capacity or disabling the link when viewed from a non android device.

Regardless I haven't been able to actually receive credit from either 3G or Wi-Fi. From what I gather, the 3G attempts to make contact through a Nat forwarder which we currently have disabled but that doesn't explain the Wi-Fi problem.

Android installer properly tracks donations now. Currently this only works if the android device has a public IP address. Fixed in r6045
