Subject: [PATCH cygport] xorg.cygclass: Allow configuration of default SRC_URI compression
Date: Mon, 11 Apr 2022 13:58:54 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Historically, xorg packages were usually provided as .gz and .bz2
compressed tarballs.  The current trend is to no longer provide .bz2,
but .gz and .xz instead.  Allow the compression to be configured, with a
backwards compatible default.
