Description Shawn Starr 2008-07-14 06:47:32 UTC
Could maintainer bump rawhide file to 4.25 so when we have LZMA with magic support
we will know our tarballs compressed with LZMA aren't looking like 'corrupt' files
from file 's point of view :-)

Ufff...  They manage to release new file versions so often that one can't even
go for a vacation.  Will do if nothing breaks again.

Comment 2 Shawn Starr 2008-07-21 17:13:25 UTC
I may have a patch for you and upstream, since I now co-maintain lrzip it uses
LZMA + LZO to compress files, and this has a different magic header.

This will be a different bug though.
