I got this after refreshing EditTablerowPlugin from SVN.

Fetching http://twiki.org/p/pub/Plugins/EditTablerowPlugin/EditTablerowPlugin.tgz...
Warning: I can't install http://twiki.org/p/pub/Plugins/EditTablerowPlugin/EditTablerowPlugin.tgz because I don't recognise the download as a gzip file.
Warning: Extension may not have been packaged correctly. Trying for a .zip file instead.

Return to configuration

Some other plugins share the same problem.

See related issue Item3748.

I don't think so.

I think we have two problems.

In 4.1.2 configure is looking at the headers received from Apache (twiki.org) and if it does not match a specific type AND if it is not the last line in the headers configure rejects the file. This check is soo aggresive and should be replaced by a simple check if there is a zip or tgz file with that suffix. Looking for mime type in a header is not a good way because this depends on apache settings and maybe also by chance and additionally proxies can add headers.

If this is solved it should be in 4.1.3! BTW: will there be a 4.1.3? wink

Done in MAIN and Patch04x01

This fix was not complete. Follow-up in Item4161.
