Does there still have to be a “&” at the end of the URL for the tar.gz files?

Huh. I hadn’t noticed that before. Has it always been that way?

Since early 4.0.x releases, IIRC. Something to do with apache compressing it twice otherwise (something like that), but it seems to work without the & nowadays. Anyone remember in which specific situation this was needed?

That is what the comment in the source would indicate, but Isn’t the comment in the source bit misleading? I’ve always thought that it’s not about double compression, but skipping compression due to the extension. E.g. the Content-Encoding header is set which makes the client to try and uncompress the download. Either the header is set because the extension, or the compression is skipped due to it while the Content-Encoding header is still sent.

But ultimately it’s just a workaround for someone else’s issue.
