Too bad, yes.

I guess I comply.

In spearfish:

$ g.region rast=vegcover
$ r.out.gdal in=vegcover format=GTiff type=Byte
out=tmp/vegcover_jpg.tif createopt=COMPRESS=JPEG

Is there something wrong with: "format=GTiff type=Byte
createopt=COMPRESS=JPEG" when exporting an integer raster, value range 1-6:

In spearfish:

$ r.info -t vegcover

$ r.info -r vegcover

in the context of what GDAL's GeoTIFF spec says: "JPEG should only be
used with Byte data"?
