Aply cannot handle deb packages using control.tar.xz #655
Ever since the release of dpkg 1.19.0,
Currently aptly does not seem to support handling
Currently it affects users of Debian Testing and Debian Unstable but we can expect more users affected by this bug due to downstream adaption of new dpkg.
Do not assume hardcoded
Debian Unstable, using dpkg 18.104.22.168.
Hmm, it seems I missed aptly when I was checking for other tools directly handling .deb packages for https://wiki.debian.org/Teams/Dpkg/DebSupport. Support for non-gzip compressed (or not compressed) control.tar is not recent (dpkg 1.17.6), so you might want to check the deb(5) man page and that wiki page for any other features currently not supported, and while you are at it, fill the aptly stub entry I've just added there! Thanks. :)
