Description Ville Skyttä 2013-06-25 16:34:50 EDT
Compressing the tarball with xz -e instead of bzip2 would save about 12 MB, see http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.redhat.fedora.devel/181336 and let me know if you'd like me to take care of this for devel.
Comment 1 Mattia Verga 2013-06-26 14:49:40 EDT
I'm already repackaging main program sources to remove prohibited content, so no problem to compress the resulting package with xz instead of bzip2, I will do it.

But additional catalog sources are provided directly from the developer and I prefer not to repackage them. I will, however,  propose to the developer to use xz format.

Done in rawhide.
