Download lfs-pachages-4.0.tar: is everything in it?

I'm downloading from .../lfs-packages/4.0

There is a file named "lfs-packages-4.0.tar" which is 103M in size.

I wonder if everything is in this tarball. If so, I don't need to download the other files one by one.

The tarball contains all the packages you will be installing. It does not contain any of the book formats, you'll have to download the book itself, or read it online.
