Summary0006022: Strange tar file for Caml-Light documentation
DescriptionOn http://caml.inria.fr/download.en.html, [^] there is a link to:

  http://caml.inria.fr/pub/distrib/caml-light-0.74//cl74refman.html.tar.gz [^]

This file is somehow corrupted.
Steps To ReproduceWhen I try to untar it using GNU tar, I get:

glondu@wencory:/tmp/toto$ tar xf cl74refman.html.tar.gz
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
Additional InformationHowever, when I explicitly do gunzip followed by tar, I get something that seems to be the intended documentation.
TagsNo tags attached.

I figured it out: the file is actually a .tar.gz.gz (doubly gzip-compressed).

On our server, it is stored as a normally-compressed tar file, so it must be the web server that recompresses it for transmission. This will need further investigation.

We had the same problem for the original manual, which had to be renamed. We never got around to figuring the right Apache magical incantation to make sure the server doesn't recompress it.

I remember now: it's the ".html" part that makes Apache misbehave.
The solution is to rename the file to "cl74refman-html.tar.gz" and to patch all the links pointing to it.
