Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Download parameter usage and the {{repo link}} template for TAR files

Hi! For the last edit where the download parameter for the {{infobox aircraft}} template usage changed from:

 {{gitlab zip file|user=mdanil|repo=Tu-144|full=1|tag=0.5.0}}


 [https://gitlab.com/mdanil/Tu-144/repository/archive.tar.bz2?ref=0.5.0 Release]

this does not work as you cannot have the text "Release" here - you must use a pure URL rather than a Mediawiki link.

From the change, I gather that you would like a link to the TAR file rather than the ZIP file. For that I would recommend simply extending the set of {{repo link}} templates. You could create the {{gitlab tar file}} template by copying the contents of {{gitlab zip file}} and changing "*.zip" to "*.tar.gz". This is very easy, as these are subtemplates of {{repo link}}, and the change would be of benefit for everyone! Then you could add it to the list at {{repo link/doc related}}. Cheers!

How do you do,

The last edit was because I saw the template not working. Maybe I should have waited some time.

While I strongly prefer TAR files and expect them to be more widely used with free software, I would not mind changing to ZIP if it is more appropriate.
