Euses-no-compression-for-data-tarball

Tag versions

The tag is present in Lintian version 2.104.328. That is the most recent version we know about.

The data portion of this binary package uses a non-compressed format. Although dpkg will support extracting such binary packages since dpkg 1.10.24, creating them is not advised except in special cases.

Except if data is non-compressible, use gzip for maximum compatibility and speed, and xz for maximum compression ratio.

Please refer to the deb(5) manual page for details.
