[erlang-questions] OTP Source File md5 checksum incorrect
Sun May 27 09:20:33 CEST 2018
You did not download a tar file, you downloaded a tar.gz and your
browser/client automatically gunzipped it.
It's due to the HTTP headers in the response, it's sent back as an
application/x-tar with content-encoding x-gzip, and some browsers save
that decoded. You can use a different client to get the actual tar.gz,
for example curl.
To avoid the issue erlang.org should not send the content-encoding
header in the response.
