Well, we do accept compressed archives, so you would be uploading about
80MB instead of 431MB, but that would still be a problem for anyone
releasing large tarballs over unreliable connections. I know you
routinely do 2-3 releases at once, so that would still mean uploading

I don't have immediate statistics on how many people release using "kup
--tar", but I know that at least you and Linus rely on that exclusively.
