They are not required in the tarball. Also, the xz compression would be even smaller.


I tried to recompress the curl 7.50.3 archive with xz but it didn't beat lzma that we already offer.

Here's how the sizes compare:

-rw-r--r-- 1 dast haxx 11091130 Sep 14 07:59 curl-7.50.3.zip
-rw-r--r-- 1 dast haxx  8908593 Sep 14 07:59 curl-7.50.3.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 dast haxx  7478393 Sep 14 07:59 curl-7.50.3.tar.bz2
-rw-rw-r-- 1 dast haxx  6004136 Oct 16 16:56 curl-7.50.3.tar.xz
-rw-r--r-- 1 dast haxx  6003154 Sep 14 07:59 curl-7.50.3.tar.lzma
