Heh, check this out though.
From gzip.org: "Last modification: July 27th, 2003".
From gnu.org: "Updated: 6 May 2000"
And the version we use is what's stored on gnu's alpha mirror. The last
release was 2002. ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/
All told, the information at gzip.org is probably the more correct,
although, gnu.org has the advantage of not mentioning any "current"
