Re: [tycho-user] Pack200'd artifacts w/o unpacked ones?

not that I know of.
the mirror tool [1] also only has the option to include/exclude packed
files (in addition to jars).

BTW if I remember correctly the packed archive is the first one that is
tried to be downloaded by p2 (fallback to plain jar only if no packed
version available), so I don't think this will create extra load on the
client. Only the server has some more jars which are mostly not needed.
