         Component: general

xz is an improved compression format to be used in combination with tar. It has
significantly better compression ratio than bz2. It is slower in packing, but
slightly faster than bz2 in unpacking. Recent tar versions support xz directly
through the -J parameter.

For backwards compatibility, bz2 tarballs are probably still needed, but xz
tarballs could be provided as a more modern alternative.

Reproducible: Always
