The Python standard library includes lzma and support for *tar.xz archives since Python 3.3 but the distutils' 'sdist' command cannot output source distributions as such tarball.
I suggest the changed version of distutils.archive_util module attached to this issue in order to tell distutils that tarfile now supports tar.xz
(The changes are to the defenition of 'ARCHIVE_FORMATS' and 'make_tarball'

Thanks for the suggested patch.  Distutils support for xz compression is the subject of already open Issue16314.  Perhaps you can review and/or comment on the suggested patch there.
