#3072 closed defect (invalid)

downloading modules with wget fails

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Alec Thomas
Priority: normal Component: TracHacks
Severity: normal Keywords: wget
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11

Description

This issue was raised a year ago for the TocMacro component (ticket #1148), but it seems like a general problem for the site, not just that component.

Attempts to use wget to download a component (eg, xmlrpcplugin) result in files that do not have zip extensions:

wget http://trac-hacks.org/changeset/latest/tractagsxmlrpcplugin?old_path=/&filename=tractagsxmlrpcplugin&format=zip

results in:

xmlrpcplugin\?old_path\=%2F

attempting to rename them (eg. xmlrpcplugin.zip) results in an error stating that the files are not recognized as zip files.

Is there a trick to getting the components from the site via wget?

You need to quote the URLs at the shell:

wget 'http://trac-hacks.org/changeset/latest/tractagsxmlrpcplugin?old_path=/&filename=tractagsxmlrpcplugin&format=zip'

This is not an issue with TracHacks.
