Can't decompress Genome STRiP tar.gz file normally
I downloaded both the latest versions of 2016 and 2017; both failed to be decompressed with `tar xzf svtoolkit_*.tar.gz' on Ubuntu 16.04 and 14.04:
tar: This does not look like a tar archive tar: Skipping to next header tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
I was scratching my head and decided to do
gunzip svtoolkit_*.tar.gz and then
tar xf svtoolkit_*.tar. And it works. So something is not correct with the tar.gz file there. I will also be easier if MD5 or SHA256 signatures are posted.
