Hello Ulrich.

Thank you for maintaining ed and for the new release. I cannot find
any .tar.gz file for release 1.10, though. Is it on purpose that it
is no longer provided?

You are welcome.

Gzip is becoming obsolete and a small but growing number of GNU projects are no more providing gzipped tarballs (alive, gnutls, coreutils, ddrescue, grep, guile-sdl, serveez, diffutils, idutils, parted, rcs, cppi, vc-dwim...).

I have been phasing out gzip for 5 years now, and my plan is to stop providing .gz files from now on. I hope this transition does not cause too many problems, as lzip is well supported by GNU tools like tar or automake, and is the only format used for testing versions by some projects[1].
