8 It's a pain in the ass for Release Engineering, too. At this point,
9 we're looking into how we need to modify the bootstrap sequence to
10 accommodate people using lzma for system (and lower) packages.
14 We're already getting reports of this due to someone deciding that it'd
15 be a good idea to use lzma for our daily portage snapshots without any
16 discussion here. Luckily, we still have the other tarballs to use, too.
