Subject: [gentoo-portage-dev] Package compression header for binhosts
Date: Tue, 01 Jun 2010 04:07:05
1 Hi,
3 In order to support alternative compression types for binhost
4 packages, I was thinking about adding support for a header field in
5 the Packages index file. For example, a header line like
6 "PACKAGE_EXTENSION: txz" could be used to indicate that clients
7 should download files with txz extensions instead of tbz2
8 extensions. I'm planning to add support for both tgz [1] and txz
9 extensions.
