Description Daniel Tröder univentionstaff 2015-12-29 14:21:20 CET
syntax.py checks for Base64GzipText with:

zlib.decompress(gziped_data, 16+zlib.MAX_WBITS)

Which is invalid as the 2nd argument wbits may only be <= zlib.MAX_WBITS. This results always in
error: Error -3 while decompressing data: incorrect header check

Removing the wbits argument fixes the issue. Its default value is zlib.MAX_WBITS anyway (https://docs.python.org/2/library/zlib.html#zlib.decompress).
Comment 1 Daniel Tröder univentionstaff 2016-01-04 09:31:45 CET
The syntax check was fixed in commits 66549 and 66550.
Comment 2 Florian Best univentionstaff 2016-01-11 14:05:31 CET
