You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Up to version 1.0.1, the image store proxy cannot handle compressed
images, which means Canonical would have to provide 10GB files
uncompressed somewhere, rather than the much smaller 700MB versions.
Version 1.0.2 is able to handle gzip compressed images.

It's important to integrate this change in time for Karmic, otherwise
even if we implement support for compressed images in Lucid, we'd still
have to provide the uncompressed images for Karmic-based deployments to

The change has been properly unittested, and manually tested as well
with a real installation of a compressed image and of an uncompressed
image to ensure it continues working correctly.
