Description Ville Skyttä 2006-10-02 13:18:39 EDT
The %description of the gzip package says:

"Gzip should be installed on your Red Hat Linux system, because it is a
very commonly used data compression program."

"Red Hat Linux" should probably be just removed or replaced with eg. Fedora 
Comment 1 Roy-Magne Mo 2006-10-10 14:51:21 EDT
The description itself is poor so it should probably be reworded. 

Something like: 
Gzip is short for GNU zip and compresses and decompresses .gz-files.
Additionally gzip decompresses the original compress format.
Comment 2 Ivana Varekova 2006-10-23 07:15:54 EDT
fix in gzip-1.3.5-10.

very commonly used data compression program.
Comment 4 Ivana Varekova 2007-05-09 09:42:24 EDT
Package description is right - this seems to be rpm problem.
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 2007-05-09 12:39:09 EDT
Reassign to specspo.

Comment 6 Paul Nasrat 2007-05-10 06:22:42 EDT
specspo contains translations for descriptions it is likely this is out of sync.
Try rpm -e specspo and then rpm -qip gzip...
Comment 7 Stepan Kasal 2007-08-10 03:07:27 EDT
reassignn to me
Comment 8 Stepan Kasal 2007-11-06 09:06:58 EST
This type of problem was cause by the unfortunate en_US catalogue (translation
"from English to English"), see bug #168758.
The problem has been fixed in specspo-15-1.
