Description

Current ruby releases generate *.tar.gz, *.tar.bz2, *.tar.xz, and *.zip.
But I think we can stop generating *.tar.bz2.

I think *.tar.bz2 are less merit.
For better size, *.tar.xz exist.
For better compatibility, *.tar.gz and *.zip exist.

I check some programming languages source package archives.

tar.bz2 are rare.

How about stopping *.tar.bz2 since next release?

(I know ruby-build use *.tar.bz2. And it can use *.tar.gz)
