Bug#770214: source tarball should not be compressed with xz

Control: tag -1 patch pending

Joey Hess <id@joeyh.name> (2014-11-19):
> Package: debootstrap
> Version: 1.0.64
> Severity: normal
> xz is not a common format, and this makes it unncessarily difficult to
> install debootstrap from source on unfamiliar linux systems. The space
> savings are miniscule. Please switch to a tar.gz.

Thanks for the report, master has a patch:
|  dpkg-source -i -I -b debootstrap
| dpkg-source: info: using options from debootstrap/debian/source/options: --compression=gzip
| dpkg-source: info: using source format `3.0 (native)'
| dpkg-source: info: building debootstrap in debootstrap_1.0.65.tar.gz
| dpkg-source: info: building debootstrap in debootstrap_1.0.65.dsc
