Follow-up Comment #4, task #15699 (project reproduce):

Good point! You mean to use the '--best' (or '-9') option when calling lzip,

I'll update the existing tarballs to be compressed at the '-9' level and
continue making new ones with it. Just as a summary, I will use the following
command (following on the example before):

$ name=xz-5.2.5
$ tar xf orig/$name.tar.gz \
  && tar -c -Hustar --owner=root --group=root \
         -f $name.tar $name/ \
  && lzip --best $name.tar \
  && rm -r $name/
