Hi, I'm currently the maintainer of rsync in Fedora. As I was informed, zlib
upstream is willing to make some changes, so rsync doesn't need its bundled
version. But some discussion about this should take place first. To quote Mark
Adler, zlib's developer: "I would change how to decide when to throw away the
history so that it would not happen so often as the rsync patch would do it,
but would retain the desired rsyncability of the compressed streams.  If I can
constrain the impact to the compression efficiency, I might even make it the
default behavior."
