           Summary: bzip2 compresses better the release archive than gzip
           Product: Wine
           Version: 20050310
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-files
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: jerome.bouat at wanadoo.fr

I compressed the official release archive with bzip2
and saw the following difference:
[j at localhost tmp]$ du Wine-20050310.tar.*
8,8M    Wine-20050310.tar.bz2
12M     Wine-20050310.tar.gz

Compressing the release archive with bzip2 instead of gzip saves about 22% of
the archive size. Since this archive is widely downloaded, bzip2 compression
could save a lot of bandwidth too.
