Subject: Package compression header for binhosts
Date: Mon, 31 May 2010 20:32:34 -0700
Hi,

In order to support alternative compression types for binhost
packages, I was thinking about adding support for a header field in
the Packages index file. For example, a header line like
"PACKAGE_EXTENSION: txz" could be used to indicate that clients
should download files with txz extensions instead of tbz2
extensions. I'm planning to add support for both tgz [1] and txz
extensions.
