Hi, Agnes

I was solely responsible for that decision. It was based entirely on 
avoiding unnecessary duplication. Space on the Apache machines is not, in 
fact, unlimited.

I assure you that WinZip or equivalent is entirely capable of unpacking 
.tar.gz compressed archives. Not only that, the download is faster because 
.tar.gz files are almost always smaller.
