Description Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-15 13:42:10 UTC
Check the zlib directory in rsync tarball.
Comment 1 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-15 19:05:21 UTC
@Diego, which version of zlib?
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-02-15 19:07:34 UTC
it is a heavily modified zlib, not the vanilla version
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-02-15 19:08:03 UTC
there's no need for security, the bundled version is perfectly up to date
Comment 4 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-02-25 18:27:57 UTC

Comment 5 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-02-25 22:06:18 UTC
in fact, read zlib/README.rsync if you want more details
Comment 6 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2009-02-26 18:06:21 UTC
that tracker states that the bundle is "unnecessary" ... as documented here, it is necessary in rsync
Comment 7 Diego Elio Pettenò (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-02-26 18:07:19 UTC
The "unnecessarily" was meant regarding static link, not bundling, sorry.
Comment 8 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2009-02-26 19:29:12 UTC
i'm agreeable to that, thanks
