Tonight we rolled out a massive change to how we generate downloadable archives. Now when you hit the zip or tgz icon you’ll see a “loading” box as we kick off a background job that archives your repo. When the archive is ready, you’ll be redirected to the file and the “loading” box will disappear. This approach allows us to generate even very large archives without breaking a sweat!
