Download URL not working anymore

Hi Githubers,

I was trying to download an archive of specific commit at https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/archive/ebbecf992a466f9bffbd9e3f443f56f64994a277/rpi-firmware-ebbecf992a466f9bffbd9e3f443f56f64994a277.tar.gz and wget reported an error …

Tried on my browser : works, but it’s not redirected to the same URL …

Tried from a private session : same as wget, it’s redirected to a 404 error URL.

I’ve spoken with some fellow devs who also had the same problem, not for all repos, not for all commits.

Any help ?

No help - just to support the complaint with another example:

This affects multiple scripts using wget on GitHub repos. Would be great to have fixed with some (high) priority!

@cwillinglooks like it’s ok now. Can you confirm on your side it’s back to normal ?

Yep, back to normal now. Thanks for dealing with it.
