D.gnu - CI: GCC no longer publishes .bz2 tarballs

reply Johannes Pfau <nospam example.com> writes:
I just updated the gdc-6 branch in my repo to gcc 6.4.0 and the CI
started to fail downloading the tarball. Turns out that the .bz2
tarball was replaced with a .tar.xz tarball for gcc 6.4.0 and I guess
it'll be similar for all new releases:
ftp://ftp.mirrorservice.org/sites/sourceware.org/pub/gcc/releases/gcc-6.4.0/

What's the best workaround for this? Simply trying .xz first and if
that fails trying .bz2? Or switching to .gz tarballs entirely?

Just switch it to whatever is the current. Downloading the xz would be better for size.
