We have a couple of extensions (e.g. CiviSEPA) that are approved for automated distribution. This means, users should be able to download and install the extension from the CiviCRM menu.
We uploaded the extensions as *.tar.gz files - which works fine if we install the extension manually.However, CiviCRM seems to expect *.zip files when installing from the menu - users reported an error (see screenshot).
Hence my question: Can CiviCRM's automated distribution handle *.tar.gz files? And/or is anyone familiar with the error message?
--> If it can't, it should probably not be possible to upload *.tar.gz files.!
PS: I am aware that we could create a git tag and let the autoreleaser script on civicrm.org do its thing - however this is currently not an option.
