Re: Solving the compression dilema when rsync-ing Debian versions

I am "upstream" and I do want to make gzip rsync-friendly by default
(without even a --rsync option) since the cost in compression ratio
is negligible. But I need help on the gzip development since I no longer
have time to do everything myself. After my interview on SlashDot
where I asked for help I got no serious offer. I need someone with
data compression expertise and some experience with the maintenance
of an open source project.
