Joachim,

For sourceforge URLs, you can safely omit the question mark and everything after it, since that's part of the browser download load balancing process. When downloading with wget, curl, or python's urllib, downloads.sourceforge.net does its own behind-the-scenes load balancing. As for hyphens, I don't believe they need to be escaped, since they're not XML entities like the ampersand is. The following download_by_url action should work:

<action type="download_by_url">http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/transpose/transpose/transpose-2.0/2.0/transpose-2.0.zip</action>

Hi all,


Not fixed yet. Somehow the download does not work: I have escaped the
ampersands and the hyphens. The download seems to have to proceed, since
I receive no error from the download step. The next step in the
dependencies file gives an error: mv: cannot stat transpose.zip': No
such file or directory



Cheers,
J

You must escape any ampersand in the XML as &amp; and then it should
work.

Hi all,


The download URL seems not to be accepted in tool_dependencies.xml.
It is an
URL from sourceforge, the direct link to a package.

The error upon uploading the tool to my toolshed:
