What did you do?

$ go install framagit.org/InfoLibre/rapido@latest

It should download all the module package.

What did you see instead?

Nothing is downloaded and there's an error message because one of the file in the package contains * character: https://framagit.org/InfoLibre/rapido/-/blob/master/docs/diaspora*.png

The error is intentional, and the error message seems to be accurate.

You can't create a Go module containing a file with that name because it would be impossible to extract that module on Windows (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/fileio/naming-a-file#naming-conventions), and Go modules are intended to be downloadable on all platforms that Go supports.
