             Bug #: 47822
           Summary: please provide xz compressed tarball
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.12.0
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: cworth at cworth.org
        ReportedBy: chithanh at gentoo.org
         QAContact: cairo-bugs at cairographics.org

Between cairo-1.10.2 and 1.12.0 the gzip compressed tarball grew from 23 MB to
60 MB (mostly caused by additions to the test/ directory).

Please provide an xz compressed tarball too. This would reduce download size
for users who build cairo from source by compensating for some of the size

Comparison between different compressors:
Uncompressed    89006080
gzip -9         63084508
bzip2 -9        61112978
xz -6 (default) 42046320
xz -7           36911776
xz -8           30381868
xz -9           29569496
squashfs-gzip   31555584 (due to many duplicate files)
