Cannot install extensions referenced by a github link to a tarball, only zipball links work #1296
I found out about this while trying to install "dokufreaks/plugin-include" from the Extension Manager.
Then I found out this issue only arise with an extension where the "install" button point to a tarball, not for an extension where the link points to a zipball.
I suspect that, at this line of code:
This recent commit is probably the culprit :)
The same error has been observed in this issue, where the link point to a tarball:

Is this really fixed?
I'm on Release 2015-08-10a "Detritus" and noticed today that I can not install the Creole plugin. I changed the link on the page to zipball and then it worked.
Also I have to mention the extension manager did not give any error message after installing the plugin. It said installation was successful. But I noticed the Creole plugin didn't work. I wanted to check the plugin configuration and noticed the Creole plugin was not listed on the config page. Then I did go back to the extension manager again and noticed the plugin was installed but disabled. I clicked on enable but the page just re-loaded and the enable button was still shown. That means I could not enable the plugin.
As mentioned above, everything worked fine as soon as I changed the download link to zipball.
