[Closed] Devuan Repository ~ Suggestion


Theres a quite a good compression ratio of zipping of text files.

If the repository files are zipped then, the updating would take much smaller time, on both ends: server & client.
Plus ... lower bandwidth usage, and lesser network traffic.

Like right now:

ls -hls

112K -rw-r--r-- 1 user users 111K Nov 27 04:11 Release
 24K -rw-r--r-- 1 user users  22K Nov 27 04:11 Release.xz


Edit 2: The following download is too much consuming (29.4MB), today on 19-Dec-2017:

# apt update
