Right now, the import from URL feature only looks at the extension of the URL to figure out if it's a reasonable type of file (zip or tgz). notably, this does not work with github. Since we're already doing a HEAD request, we should look at the content-type when we have one.
This is a mass migration from Mozilla Labs :: Bespin to Bespin :: General. This bug likely still needs to be triaged and categorized.

ACETRANSITION The Skywriter project has merged with Ajax.org's Ace project (the full server part of which is their Cloud9 IDE project). Background on the change is here: http://mozillalabs.com/skywriter/2011/01/18/mozilla-skywriter-has-been-merged-into-ace/ The bugs in the Skywriter product are not necessarily relevant for Ace and quite a bit of code has changed. For that reason, I'm closing all of these bugs. Problems that you have with Ace should be filed in the Ace issue tracker at GitHub: https://github.com/ajaxorg/ace/issues
