Yes, that's because this was the proof of concept implementation. If everyone seems relatively happy with it, I'll expand it to include gz for a later release (2.3? 3.0?) and eventually add Phar support once PHP5.3 has better penetration.

When i download a module from web2project-mod of sourceforge (Download GNU tarball), its filetype is application/x-gzip. I must first unzip it on my computer to install it.

When i upload a module from my computer , its filetype is application/x-zip

I've been working on this one.. gz isn't supported in core PHP. The only options are either dropping to shell_exec or to use a slightly odd PEAR Archive module.

This isn't likely to make it into v3.0

Since we've moved everything to Github, the default download format is a zip file so the "zip only" limitation is no longer a problem.

I'm changing this issue to acknowledged.

While it's resolved in the v4.0 development branch. That is going to be reviewed commit by commit and merged into a new development branch over the next couple months.
