Description Till Maas 2008-11-26 18:18:19 EST
Spec URL: http://till.fedorapeople.org/review/lzip.spec
SRPM URL: http://till.fedorapeople.org/review/lzip-1.1-1.tillf8.src.rpm
Lzip compresses data using LZMA (Lempel-Ziv-Markov chain-Algorithm). It
supports integrity checking using CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check). To archive
multiple files, tar can be used with lzip. Please note, that the lzip file
format (.lz) is not compatible with the lzma file format (.lzma).

Upstream of pam_mount changed to use this to compress their tarballs, therefore I need it to update pam_mount in rawhide.

Comment 3 Till Maas 2008-11-27 07:01:23 EST
Thank you very much for this fast review. I will address all your notes. But I am a little bit uncertain about the TODO file, because I would like to have some mechanism to add it only if it is not empty, e.g. if some contents are added in a future release. I asked in fedora-devel whether this is possible.
