I downloaded cvs2svn-1.3.0.tar.gz to my Windows XP, and it saved it
under cvs2svn-1.3.0.tar.tar name, after that I copied this file to a
Linux server.

When I tried to extract this tar file, the following error was

[swt@sam01 ~]$ tar -xf cvs2svn-1.3.0.tar.tar
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Read 6510 bytes from cvs2svn-1.3.0.tar.tar

I found out later, that I've do the following:

1. gunzip cvs2svn-1.3.0.tar.gz

2. tar -xf cvs2svn-1.3.0.tar

I'd be nice to have a quick reference just as a reminder at the download
page to inform users they need to do the above two steps. That would
save time, and avoid the frustration of not knowing.
