Our forked version of Gzip adds a patch to add the <tt>--rsyncable</tt> option, which creates an "rsync-friendly" archive. This option used by <tt>vzdump</tt> utility
+
 
+
Here is the full description of this option:
+
 
+
<blockquote>
+
"While compressing, synchronize the output occasionally based on the
+
input.  This reduces compression by about 1 percent most cases, but
+
means that the <tt>rsync</tt> program can take advantage of similarities
+
in the uncompressed input when syncronizing two files compressed with
+
this flag.  <tt>gunzip</tt> cannot tell the difference between a
+
compressed file created with this option, and one created without it."
