Comment 3 Oleh 2013-01-20 19:33:52 UTC
patch moves vzdump ebuilds to perl-module eclass, where is --rsyncable related
Comment 4 Oleh 2013-01-20 19:35:42 UTC
rsyncable patch moved out of gzip, see
Comment 5 Peter Volkov (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2013-10-23 19:47:03 UTC
Andreis, I think if we want this we should use pigz. But somebody should implement this :)
Comment 6 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2016-03-30 04:39:13 UTC
Upstream gzip 1.7 now implements --rsyncable

Waiting this bug to be closed after gzip 1.7 hits stable branch
Comment 7 Sergey Popov gentoo-dev 2016-09-15 11:14:46 UTC
sys-apps/gzip-1.8 is in stable, closing this as FIXED
