      Description

      Our current npm repository behaviour:

      1. Request a package tgz through a proxy repository that exists in the remote. 404 not found
      2. Request the metadata for that package. 200 response and package url in step 1 says to get it from Nexus
      3. Try to get the package again from Nexus - still 404, cached not found.

      Expected: Nexus should try to be more forgiving when a package file is requested before metadata.
