It is not recognized by fileroller or tar.

a tarred version of the manual
Thanks for your report, it should be fixed after the next rebuild of the
website, in a few hours.
$ tar xvfz policy.html.tar.gz
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
Running gunzip followed by tar works to uncompress it.
Has it been gzipped multiple times? The policy.html.tar created by
running gunzip on the tar.gz is not in a human-readable format.
