umm... are you sure?
trying to dl
and ALWAYS ending up with less_346-6.diff
well, messing with this stuff discovered very strange thing:
d/l less_346-6.diff, more then 30k uncompressed, then tried
to restore archive and gzip -9 (is it REALLY best compression?)
gives me file size 10847 while in .dsc the compressed
file size is equal to 10831 !
and i tested such effect with several .diff files.
