GPX Zip file is not Zipped

FYI, says, under 11/14/2017 news, "So we are once again offering a .gpx file of all active caches on our site, with an effective date of 1 October 2017. You can find that here in zipped form. (12.6 MB zipped). "

However, the link is to an Unzipped file,

It is about 12 MB; a zipped version would be about 2 MB. I don't know how many times it gets downloaded, but you might want to zip it, although it is easier to work with unzipped...

Also, based on gsak:LastGpxDate inside the file, and the file name, it appears to be from 1 November 2017, not 1 October.

Anyway the news sentence is not quite accurate in a couple ways, fwiw.
