Recursive download from the repository

If I am not mistaken, right now you can only download one file
at a time from the repository browser.

While devs and contributors have the VCS/SCM installed, for
less technical people installation and understanding is often a
big hurdle and much support effort is required.

The suggestion is to add an option to download all content of
the 'selected' folder and its content recursively from the repository

Interface wise it might be an idea to add another icon at the front just
before the + icon or some sort of "download button" as separate column
at the end of the line.

Design wise it is probably a good idea to combine it with a separate permission
attribute as you may not want to offer this feature to any user class.

Thank you for the consideration!

Alex's Plugin ( seems to be incompatible with current versions.

So, it would be great to see a feature to download the repository (or folders) as zip, tar, tar.gz, ...
