Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 208924
gzip package description talks about "Red Hat Linux"
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
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
The description itself is poor so it should probably be reworded.
Gzip is short for GNU zip and compresses and decompresses .gz-files.
Additionally gzip decompresses the original compress format.
fix in gzip-1.3.5-10.
Is again in rawhide:

Summary : The GNU data compression program.
The gzip package contains the popular GNU gzip data compression
program. Gzipped files have a .gz extension.
Gzip should be installed on your Red Hat Linux system, because it is a
very commonly used data compression program.
Package description is right - this seems to be rpm problem.
Reassign to specspo.
specspo contains translations for descriptions it is likely this is out of sync.
Try rpm -e specspo and then rpm -qip gzip...
reassignn to me
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.
