If these are Solaris platforms we support then that's fine and we should keep tgz files, but if these are platforms we no longer care about then I say the lives of release managers should be simplified by cutting tgz files.
I think we should actually cut bz2 files. Leave tgz for legacy platforms and users, and provide xz for much better compression.
(by the way, using GNU tar you don't have to specify the compression mode anymore: just do "tar xf ..." or "tar tf ..." and it will be autodetected)
