ftp.debian.org: Please provide xz compressed Translation-* files

Julian Andres Klode-4
Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: normal

APT in buster should now handle arbitrary compressors for translation
files, so it would be a good idea to switch from bzip2 to xz for bullseye
so we can maybe remove bzip2 support from apt in bullseye.

I suggest we start with experimental now, and then unstable
after the release of buster.

Thanks!

As a matter of fact, Ubuntu already ships .gz and .xz files since
xenial (apt 1.2), so stable should be fine with that as well.

I just don't want to break d-i or stuff, so I guess limiting things
to experimental while in freeze is probably a good idea.

debian-i18n: Is there anything on your side that would block this
atm?
