bz2 or gz for pkg_summary?

Looks like uses pkg_summary.gz and pkgin used to support only 
bz2. Now I see pkgin also supports both with bz2 first. My own pkg_get 
script uses the .gz file.  I cc developers of those who provide code 
that uses the pkg_summary.

I saw:

MD5 (/ftp/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/amd64/5.0/All/pkg_summary.bz2) = 
MD5 (/ftp/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/amd64/5.0/All/pkg_summary.gz) = 

What's going on here?

Why different time stamps on these files? Why different content?

We need to decide to pick one.

Or we must decide to force them to have same correct content.

How are these pkg_summary files put in place? Manually when packages are 

It was proposed (and code provided) to generate them automatically.
