Cannot install gems from gzip-compressing gem server

Issue #9562 has been updated by Akinori MUSHA.

Eric, I think the problem is that Gem::RemoteFetcher#fetch_path fails in
Gem.gunzip data if the data is already decoded by Net::HTTP of Ruby
2.0 and later.
It happens when the HTTP server is configured to set a
Content-Encoding: gzip header for .gz files, which itself is not
necessarily a misconfiguration.
