Re: Using .tar.xz only on (was: install-module / /

I hope this does not imply or infer that all the source tarball for GNOME will be uploaded in .xz format only. Solaris is *not* supporting .xz by default yet. This means, anyone who want to compile source code modules will have difficulties.

Just want to clarify.

 From a Debian POV, we can't upload .xz upstream tarballs yet (dpkg supports it,

Could you ask when they'd allow that? And please mention we're
considering switching. Don't want it to result in people compressing
again though.
I'm in the finishing stages to have all our scripts support .tar.xz
(install-module, release team scripts). Once that is complete, I plan to
send an 'intend to switch' announcement mail.

As a pre-warning, could you please ask the ftp-masters again to support

Note: the only reason the .tar.xz support is taking so long is because
I'm rewriting everything (see sysadmin-bin and releng modules).
Further, if you want the Python tarball module to automatically support
.tar.xz, see the ftpadmin script in sysadmin-bin module for a way (works
with Python 2.6; requires pyliblzma).
