Ah, that explains why. If I use Safari to download a .tar.xz and then use the unxz command line from a self compiled xzutuils, it creates the .tar archive and deletes the original tar.xz file.

This also seems to remove any extended attribute quarantine flags on the .tar itself. So if it is clean being tarred, it will be clean being untarred.

Very interesting to know. So their entire gatekeeper extra attributes approach is really full of BS.

And ust FYI on newer versions of macOS you can use UFLO rmat for dmg which greatly improves compression.
