Subject: [gentoo-dev] Pending removal of app-arch/gzip-x86

1 I'm masking app-arch/gzip-x86 as we speak. It seems to cause problems
2 for people[1] and is based off of gzip-1.3.3. As such, it is vulnerable
3 to a couple[2] exploits[3]. Upstream appears dead (last update was
4 2003-05-20) and no one is currently maintaining it for us. If you don't
5 want to see it go, speak up, or it will be gone in 30 days.
