Display download size of zip files and add "Length" to HTTP headers
|Reported by:||hornlo||Owned by:|
The WordPress.org site does not display the size of plugin downloads, nor does it send that information in the HTTP headers to the browser.
I currently have about a 20% failure rate on large downloads, but because no size is given, I don't know that a download has failed until I verify the zip file (or compare its size to a previous version download).
Nor can a download resume (say with "wget -c") with the current file, but starts over. It's very frustrating to have a 1 MB download fail at 900 K.
Having the size would allow the browser to display an estimate of download time and allow it to detect a download failure.
