Content-Disposition header not always set when downloading latest.tar.gz

Description

When downloading (or just checking) the latest version of WordPress as a tar.gz file, sometimes the "Content-Disposition" header is sent, and sometimes it isn't. Here are two curl requests less than 10 seconds apart:

$ curl -I 'https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz'
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: nginx
Date: Wed, 29 Apr 2015 14:56:55 GMT
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
Content-Length: 6321767
Connection: keep-alive
Cache-control: private
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=wordpress-4.2.1.tar.gz
Last-Modified: Mon, 27 Apr 2015 17:14:46 GMT
X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN
X-nc: EXPIRED lax 249
Accept-Ranges: bytes
$ curl -I 'https://wordpress.org/latest.tar.gz'
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: nginx
Date: Wed, 29 Apr 2015 14:57:04 GMT
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
Content-Length: 6321767
Connection: keep-alive
Last-Modified: Mon, 27 Apr 2015 17:14:46 GMT
X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN
X-nc: HIT lax 250
Accept-Ranges: bytes

The "Content-Disposition" header is useful for automatic jobs that track what the latest version of WordPress is by using this link. For that reason, it would be nice to see the header consistently sent in the response.
