opkg.conf file: src vs src/gz

I am looking at different opkg.conf examples on the web and would like a better understanding of the tool and configuration file format.

What is the difference between

src
and
src/gz
in the following examples?


  1. src/gz snapshots http://downloads.openwrt.org/snapshots/trunk/ar71xx/packages

  2. src snapshots http://download.geexbox.org/snapshots/geexbox-xbmc-imx6-cuboxi/latest/binaries.cuboxi/packages/



Where can I find more information about the various options in the config?

Thanks.

Answer

src/gz will download Packages.gz from the specified URL

src will download Packages from the specified URL
