Hello Alexandre, thanks for maintaining linux-libre.
Did you think about distributing lzip compressed tarballs (in addition
Lzipped tarballs of linux-2.6.XX-libre are about 9MB (17%) smaller than
bzip2ed ones. This is almost one hour less of download time for
narrowband connected people like me.
Lzip is stable and free as in freedom (GPLv3 or later).

Of course all my projects are released as lzip compressed tarballs!
