|What right(s) is(are) neaded for that ?
I've understood that to download the whole directory you have to leave the name array balank.
but what else can you do ?
The dowloaded file has no extension and seem very important, what is its format, tgz ?
I've not be able to open it.

|I have found the answer to one of my questions :
you have to add the .tgz suffix and it works.
But my other questions are remaining.

If you enter something in the field before pressing 'tgz download', then
only files containing the string you enter in their name will be downloaded.

This is a browser related issue. The server has no way to tel the client
the name of the file. The client guess it from the URL. Since the browser
does not jump to a virtual URL when you download, the browser guesses poorly.
