Hi Frank,

I noticed that you decided to add the tar.gz distribution and it appears
to raise an issue (which you also mentioned in RIVER-266), namely
the 100 character limitation. I don't know whether that is an issue
already as of today, but it might be tomorrow.

You indicated that supplying a tar.gz format made sense because it
allows you to retain the file mask, but I argued the same can be
accomplished with specifying the filemask as part of the zip task,
something that still needs to be done and which I will take care of if
you don't mind.

Although probably most will ask why is that person so bothered by the
tar.gz distribution, but I can't find any rationale for supporting the
tar format besides that it can be done (but this is true for so many
distribution formats). Note that this is from a person who many years
ago also provided tar distributions to UNIX customers, but those were
uncompressed versions ;-)
