Summary: rspec-1.0.5.tgz is broken

Initial Comment:
>From email on the rspec-devel list:

I noticed that rspec-1.0.5.tgz is broken:

$ wget -O http://rubyforge.org/frs/download.php/21457/rspec-1.0.5.tgz
12:24:11 (7.21 KB/s) - `rspec-1.0.5.tgz' saved [115639/115639]

$ md5sum rspec-1.0.5.tgz
1851730ca994cc31fd865f8894a2510e  rspec-1.0.5.tgz

$ tar xzf rspec-1.0.5.tgz
gzip: stdin: decompression OK, trailing garbage ignored
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Please provide a gzipped tarball that unpacks cleanly.
The same problem exists with older tgz's, btw.

It looks like all the .tgz files are broken:


The other files are fine, even the bigger rspec-1.0.5.zip. I therefore don't hink it has to do with size.

Something isn't handling the tgz *type* properly. It could be the MetaProject upload logic or something at Rubyforge. Rake seems to build things ok locally.

Maybe we changing it to tar.gz and/or using the "Source.gz" RubyForge type will change things?

I get the same problem with the tgz's up on rubyforge, but when I create them locally they unpack fine. Not sure where things are getting corrupted yet, but looking into it. If anybody has similar experience (i.e. packing/unpacking locally is fine but problems occur once uploaded and downloaded), please advise.
