Bug#380227: texlive-bin: Why is the source in a tar.bz archive?
now that you're obviously back from abroad, I'd like to bring this up
again. Also because I was again annoyed by it today. I wrote:
> why does the texlive-bin source package contain a file source.tar.bz2
> instead of unpacked sources? I find that very inconvenient to work

> dpkg-source to be able to read bz2 (or 7zip) archives already.
