Good evening.

By the way, I'm registered to demexp-dev so no more need to cc me.

Ok, I thought it had more to do with project organization. But whatever.

Yes, indeed. I find it surprising that Firefox uncompresses the archive without telling us *and* keeps the same filename. But whathever, nowadays' hard drives are so big that size shouldn't matter. *g*

Indeed, on a Debian sarge, it is a valid zip file. But wget'ing it on a windows host shows it to be the already mentioned directory listing.

At least, it had me chuckle.

Tested with firefox 2.0b2/win32 on my side (I know you are speaking of the mercurial's version).
