Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Release Geronimo Eclipse Plugin 2.1.0 (RC1)
Date Mon, 28 Apr 2008 13:02:25 GMT
Not sure how creating a tar.gz makes it easier, given unzip is provided 
with most Linux distros (like RHEL, Fedora, SLED/SELS, openSUSE,  ....), 
on MacOSX and most Unix distros (though maybe as an optional package, 
like on AIX.)

I'd prefer staying with zipfiles only.
