      Description

      Right now we use gz but xz has significantly lower file size AND much faster decompression.
      Furthermore, Google has a new compression format called Brotli which could also be a good candidate.

      Acceptance criteria

      • Propose alternatives to gz and measure their performance tradeoffs in various configuration
        • Key criteria: File size of a rootfs of about 500 MB and decompression resource use (including time)
      • Implement alternative as replacement for gz
