  Description     : compress a file into independent chunks

zchunk is a compressed file format that splits the file into independent
chunks. This allows you to only download changed chunks when
downloading a new version of the file, and also makes zchunk files
efficient over rsync.

zchunk files are protected with strong checksums to verify that the file
you downloaded is, in fact, the file you wanted.

This library is required by the createrepo-c library and set of tools
(https://bugs.debian.org/912338). Both will be maintained as part of
the RPM packaging team.
