Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 161775
crap behaviour with naming on redownloading
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:08 EST
Description of problem:
the download feature looks rather untested and has buggy behaviour. it changes
the version number if redownloaded source (lol).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to repro:
1. download a source tarball of your choice with the following naming scheme:
name-version.extension (like wpa_supplicant-0.4.3.tar.gz)
2. after the download is finished redownload the same file to the same directory
new file is saved as wpa_supplicant-1.4.3.tar.gz (roflmao)
some same naming of redownloaded files (like e.g. wget does)
present since fc3 ... makes firefox pretty useless for downloading sources from
the web since theres always a danger of fucking up the version tag in a tarball.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report. If after a
month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this bug as

with Fedora Core 6, Fedora 7, or Fedora devel. Mass closing this bug, so if you
