I'll make that clearer in the conf file. It actually means that FILE_SITES
is prepended to the list of places where GAR will look for tarballs, but
that's kind of a developer-centric notion. :)

You can change the garballs' Makefiles to refer to .bz2 tarballs if you
want... But yeah, this was one thing I wanted to fix before initial release
but decided it just needed to get out there first.

Hopefully we can provide archive format fallback in the next release.
