Hi everybody! Maintainer here. As gzip is a core package in Arch Linux, replacing it is definitely a sketchy prospect, but is necessary for zutils, an obvious improvement to the gzip zcat, zgrep, etc. bash scripts. Because of this, this package is as close as possible to the upstream gzip PKGBUILD and should stay that way. In this fashion, please don't flag this package out of date until the updated version of gzip is in the stable Arch Linux repositories. Thank you!
