Port details
bzip 0.21_1 archivers on this many watch lists=56 search for ports that depend on this port
Restricted RESTRICTED: may be covered by patents
Block-sorting file compressor
Maintained by: portmaster@bsdforge.com search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: unknown
License: GPLv2


Use of bzip2, which is intended to replace bzip, is recommended.
The algorithms used in bzip2 are different and incompatible with
those used in bzip.  To open .bz archives, you must use bzip, and
to open .bz2 archives you must use bzip2.  Although bzip2 sometimes
yields slightly larger output, it is faster, more reliable, maintained,
much more widely used and is believed to be patent-free.

Julian Seward, the author of bzip, gives this warning:

	This program may or may not infringe certain US patents
	pertaining to arithmetic coding and to the block-sorting
	transformation itself.  Opinions differ as to the precise
	legal status of some of the algorithms used.  Nevertheless,
	you should be aware that commercial use of this program
	could render you liable to unfriendly legal action.

Resurrect archivers/bzip and assign maintainer

This port was removed due not having a publically available distfile.
That has been fixed per the PR with maintainership assigned to submitter.

Additionally:

  * The patch-aa was renamed
  * The patch-ab and patch-ac touched the same file; they were combined
    and renamed
  * DragonFly support was added (hence the portrevision bump)
  * GPLv2 license was annotated
  * 80-column formatting was respected
  * PLIST sorted

This software is licensed under the GNU GPL.  As mentioned in the
DESCR file and in ports/LEGAL, it may be covered by patents.  I
changed NO_CDROM to RESTRICTED.

I also added a DEPRECATED line because the DESCR file recommends
the use of bzip2 instead of bzip.

Explain more clearly why users might need to install this port.
Mention the fact that bzip2 sometimes compresses less efficiently.
Remove the WWW: line, since the listed site has no information about
this port.  Credit the author for text taken from his README.
