Description Ville Skyttä 2013-07-02 21:11:35 UTC
Compressing the tarball with xz would save about 14 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 Jakub Jelinek 2013-07-04 16:17:58 UTC
As the same tarballs are used for RHEL5-RHEL7 and Fedora 19+, and RHEL5 doesn't have xz, this is not possible.

Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2013-07-07 08:07:32 UTC
Fine, note however the s/gcc-4_7-branch/gcc-4_8-branch/ fix for the svn export command.
