erh, download it just a link, and the result is just text, so your browser interprets it.

Right click the download link and choose 'save link as'

TUG cannot guard it self against intelligent browsers.

Thank you, Joseph.  I can confirm that I can indeed find the sought-for
source file(s) there, but :

(a) "View" is inhibited :

> An Exception Has Occurred
> Display of files larger than 512 KB disallowed by configuration
> HTTP Response Status
> 403 Forbidden

whilst (b) "Download" causes the file to be displayed, not downloaded.

Rather more relevantly (since this is about the sources for TeX Live
and not about any perceived deficiencies in the TUG interface to
SVN), why is "Glue.web" included as a part of TeX Live 2013, whilst
the far more fundamental "TeX.web" is not ?
