Subject [jira] (MNGSITE-157) Download links not working
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2012 04:08:21 GMT


Brett Porter commented on MNGSITE-157:

The URLs need the filename to download in it somewhere as that's how the CGI figures out what
to offer links to. Changing that to a query parameter would have quite some impact across
the ASF :)

It looks like this bug has been fixed in Safari 6, so I think we can close it again now. Can
anyone else confirm?

for maven .tar.gz files?
> When I click on apache-maven-3.0.4-bin.tar.gz, I get a file {{apache-maven-3.0.4-bin.tar.gz}}
which is 6591bytes long. Uncompressing from the Finder does not work and closer inspection
reveals that this is in fact a gzipped html file, which points you to the list of mirrors.
> This has been confusing new users for years now. Does not seem too hard to fix...
