Ticket #1207 (new enhancement)
Add xz support to expatch
|Reported by:||irishespresso||Owned by:|
xz compression has around for several years and is being used to zip an increasing number of mainstream tarballs, including several common GNU utilities and, most recently, the linux kernel itself. So I think it is now safe to say that xz is stable and it is time to add xz support to expatch. That also makes expatch consistent with the rest of paludis, which already supports xz and has had that support for a while. The attached patch adds xz support to expatch.
