Uh ? In the Download Section (*in the wiki text*, not in the right panel), there is the array that looks like this :

> MediaWiki version 	Extension version 	Git branch

each "(snapshot)" in the third column is a link that directly gives me a file Interwiki-blabla.tar.gz

for instance "master (snapshot)" directly links to


which for me directly triggers the download of a file named Interwiki-master-99fed5a.tar.gz without any intermediary step.

Does it work for you ?

Anyway, for 1.19, the current (it is about one year old) tagged version is this one:


For me this link directly starts the download of a file named Interwiki-eb39589.tar.gz

(link obtained from there: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/gitweb?p=mediawiki/extensions/Interwiki.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/REL1_19 )

I think you should try "master" first and if it does not work then go for the REL1_19 version, or maybe ask the maintainer about which one to use.
