Package: debootstrap
Version: 1.0.32
Severity: wishlist
User: debian-dpkg@lists.debian.org
Usertags: xz-compression


we discussed some time ago on debian-devel (in a ftpmaster-related thread)
the possiblity to switch dpkg-deb to generate XZ-compressed debs by
default. ftp-master.debian.org is close to being ready for this but I
saw #633782 by accident which reminded that there's more to it than
just changing dpkg-deb :-)

Please can you add support for XZ-compressed .deb and/or tell us which
package should not use XZ compression so that we can modify them
to hardcode gzip usage?

As mentioned in an earlier comment, XZ support for data.tar.* and (in a
later version) control.tar.* is already implemented for some time.  In
recent releases most base packages are also already compressed with XZ.
