We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.
When a file is renamed, some information may be lost. For example, when
source-code_20120515.tar.gz or figure1.ps.gz become SP-12-3.gz, we loose two
* a hint about the content of the file, from its name; upload comments can
include similar information, but they are not available in the SUMMARY menu
* an indication of the format of the compressed file; once decompressed to
SP-12-3, finding what the file contains and how to manipulate it is neither
easy nor user-friendly
I think the best solution would be an admin option to keep the original
(sanitized) file names. A minimal fallback is to keep all the file extensions (.tar.gz), not only the last one (.gz).
