Kick Amazon CDN harder to replace files with the same name when updating in Downloads section (BB-9147)

Issue #7986 duplicate
created an issue

If I replace a downloads file with an updated version and then download it I often get the previous version, not the version I recently updated. If I delete the file, leave it deleted for a long time and then upload the file then a download downloads the correct most recent file. But if I don't wait a long time between deleting the file and then uploading the download gives the wrong outdated version.

    This is a side-effect of Amazon's CDN being a bit strange with regards to filenames that are the same. I'm not sure what we can do about it, but I'll open this issue to take a look in the future. In the mean time, changing the name will work as well as deleting the old file first and waiting, as you noted.
