This seems like a good idea. I haven't checked that all those .xz
tarballs actually exist, but I assume you did, so:

Acked-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni at free-electrons.com>

Without your patch, the rough statistics apparently are:

 * total number of packages : 1017
 * number of packages explicitly giving a .tar.gz tarball : 218
 * number of packages explicitly giving a .tar.bz2 tarball : 424
 * number of packages explicitly giving a .tar.xz tarball : 38

Best regards,

Thomas
