Source archives (e.g. in [1]) are available in tgz and tar.xz formats, but documentation archives (e.g. in [2]) are available only in tar.bz2 and zip formats.
I suggest that documentation archives be available also in tar.xz format.

Do we need documentation archives in tar.xz format?

The format (xz vs bzip2) might not matter much, but I'd say consistency does. I'd make the formats identical just for the sake of standardization.

Where is this decided? In some (post)build script?
