Compress tarball with xz
Last modified: 2013-06-29 15:22:18 EDT
Compressing the tarball with xz instead of bzip2 would save about 2 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.

I've got no problems with switching to xz with the patch you posted. You can go ahead and take care of it if you'd like.
Actually, I'm going to have to rebuild MRPT this weekend anyway to address some other bugs, I'll take care of re-compressing the source while I'm at it.
