The without extras tarball seems to be much smaller.
Actually I think we should not include the extras for now, because that could muddy the process. The extras are essentially third-party addons, two types of thing: plugins for the audio server, and add-ons for the language. They're both GPL but the copyrights and other things would be a bit awkward, and there are additional dependencies and other stuff. (The extras are more loosely policed than the core.) > And if there are conflictive files we should use the pruned tarballs.
