+1 for dropping one of two packages.

I am not sure, if the dropped one should be the *.tar.gz one as our 
current full installation packages for Linux provided for the 
convenience of our users are *.tar.gz files.
But may be this is not relevant as the target audience for the source 
release and full installation packages are different.
