Description Ville Skyttä 2013-06-30 17:09:53 EDT
Compressing the 2.3.10 tarball with xz would save about 26 MB, see http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.redhat.fedora.devel/181336

More savings would be available from the 2.1.9 tarball but there's no script to generate it nor links to download it from.
