File name when downloading a tag

Jérôme Berger
created an issue

When downloading a tag as a .tar.gz, .tar.bz2 or .zip archive, the file is named: "{{{user-repository-hash.}}}", same as when downloading a snapshot referred by hash. It would be nice if the archive (and the included folder) was named "{{{user-repository-tag.}}}".

For example, when downloading https://bitbucket.org/jmb/cseh/get/1.2.0.tar.gz the file is named "{{{jmb-cseh-ad591c014a9e.tar.gz}}}" but I would prefer to get "{{{jmb-cseh-1.2.0.tar.gz}}}".

    Hi Jérôme,

    What you're describing is how Bitbucket worked up until about a month ago, when we inadvertently changed it (and broke people's scripts that relied on that filename pattern).

    We now find ourselves in a difficult situation. Changing it back will once more break it for people en so for now we're going to stick with what we have. Should we decide to change it again in the future, we'll properly announce it.

    Erik
