File downloads with GET data

There should be something here about what to do when a file's URL has GET data at the end of it after the file name. Here's an example, and how I'm handling it:

# To download directly, use this URL:
# Source0:    http://trac.bjourne.webfactional.com/attachment/wiki/WikiStart/Gtk2-ImageView-0.04.tar.gz?format=raw
Source0:      http://trac.bjourne.webfactional.com/attachment/wiki/WikiStart/Gtk2-ImageView-0.04.tar.gz

(except with %{version} in there) I borrowed that from the gtkimageview specfile. Any suggestions otherwise? If not, that should probably be worked into this page somewhere. -- J. Randall Owens 11:55, 2 July 2008 (UTC)

Sourceforge.net section error

In the sourceforge.net section, the suggested scheme for a Source0 entry is:

Source0: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/%{name}/%{name}-%{version}.tar.gz


However, when put into practice this scheme gives an eternal loop, according to rpmlint:

HTTP Error 302: The HTTP server returned a redirect error that would lead to an infinite loop. The last 30x error message was: Found
