      Description

      On the web page:
      http://geronimo.apache.org/apache-geronimo-v221-release.html

      Platform Download Link PGP SHA MD5

      The download links

      http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/geronimo/2.2.1/geronimo-jetty7-javaee5-2.2.1-bin.tar.gz
      http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/geronimo/2.2.1/geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.2.1-bin.tar.gz

      give gz compressed html pages, not tar archives...

      -bash-3.2$ gunzip geronimo-jetty7-javaee5-2.2.1-bin.tar.gz
      -bash-3.2$ file geronimo-jetty7-javaee5-2.2.1-bin.tar
      geronimo-jetty7-javaee5-2.2.1-bin.tar: HTML document text

      <html lang="en">
      <head>
      <title>Apache Download Mirrors</title>
      ...

      The normal apache mirror sites seem to have the correct tar.gz files/content...

      -bash-3.2$ file geronimo-jetty7-javaee5-2.2.1-bin-mirror.tar
      geronimo-jetty7-javaee5-2.2.1-bin-mirror.tar: POSIX tar archive

        What Web Browser are you using? I think we'll find that this is browser/configuration specific behavior... Safari used to behave like that, but the links work for me...

        also Safari Version 5.1.2 (6534.52.7)

        Safari downloads a ".tar", but the content is the same mirror page HTML as
        I get when gunzip'ing Chrome's .tar.gz...

        If I "rename and load" the html file in either chrome or safari, I can
        download the files from a mirror without any problem...

        I think this is some background on the problem. I'm sure there is more doc around. IIUC, this is a Mac OS problem:

        https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=47513
        https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32262

        There's an Apple Problem ID: 7467342, but I didn't track that down to a URL.

        FYI, I'm on Safari 5.1.5, Mac OS X 10.7.3 and downloads work for me. I'd seen reports of this being fixed in 5.1.2, but you seem to be evidence of otherwise...

        I'd be open to alternatives to work-around the problem...

        I have verified this on Safari 5 on Mac OS X 10.5.8 regarding the link:
        http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/geronimo/2.2.1/geronimo-jetty7-javaee5-2.2.1-bin.tar.gz
        It exhibits the bug reported https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=32262
        Adding a "1" to the end of the url brings up an HTML page proving that a URL ending with "tar.gz" or "gz" is handled specially by MacOSX/Safari and is not the web site.

        Using Firefox 3 on Mac OS X 10.5.8 for this link works normally.
