[The original thread is on users@]

I just noticed that when I click the 'Source Download' link in the
navigation tab on our web page, I get:


instead of plain


Can anyone remember why that is? It seems wrong, and also doesn't appear
to do anything, since the page contents and especially download links
appear to be the same in both cases.

It was done in r1804690, the log message is:

Release Subversion 1.9.7 with a fix for CVE-2017-9800.

So it's possible that we forgot to clean that up after the security fix
release ... and also that the ?update= parameter doesn't appear to work
properly (any more).
