> Hi all
> any opinions to provide xz compressed tarballs? It has better
> compression ratio that gzip or bzip2, while it requires similar
> resources for decompression as gzip (and this much less than bzip2).
> The script for creating releases and website is prepared for this, all
> what needs to be done is ensuring that xz-utils are installed on
> system, where relases are being done and enabling it in script creating
> release.
> You can find more information on xz here:

PS: You can see size differences on the snapshots, which are already
compressed using xz:
