comment Can tar discover the archive format when piping it in via wget?
@FaheemMitha New tar does not need uncompress flag. See askubuntu.com/a/107976/32792 for reference. And as I pointed out in my question: tar with tar xf myarchive.tar.gz. Or tar xf someotherarchive.tar.xz works. Piping them it in from wget is what causes trouble.
