Cool. I wanted to make sure that you're aware of it.

Alright, I've put in a short description and removed the obsolete information.

I'm not sure what more would you like there to be. It's usually just
one file, the tarball, not much philosophy in there. If you have more
than one source file, then there's a lot more you have to do, like
custom unpack targets. That would be best described via an example. Is
that what you're looking for? What's your use case?
