Re: Bug#988689: ITP: 7zip -- 7-Zip file archiver

Hi all,

"p7zip" is a forked project from "7-Zip" project.
My "7zip" package is come from original "7-Zip" project.
Both code is something different from each other.

"p7zip" provides "7z" command, and "7z" has plugin module
functionality to load unRAR code.
"7zip" provides "7zz" command, and "7zz" is a stand-alone style binary
that doesn't have plugin module functionality.
I just drop unRAR code to keep DFSG. See my salsa Git repository.
